Students who attend the Indiana University will now be able to achieve their fashion design degree, as it is a new major available starting this fall, according to the Indiana Daily Student.

It will be offered through the Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design (AMID), and outline a number of aspects of the design world to its students. It will also encourage creativity and enhanced communication between the pupils in the classroom, according to the news provider.

"The fashion design bachelor of arts major is intended to educate students in the art, process and product of fashion design in the 21st century," Kate Rowold, the AMID professor and chair, told the news source. "The major will replace the certificate with a more expansive degree objective."

Individuals who are interested in fashion design may want to know how much they can earn after they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals in this field make around $61,000, which was the annual median salary in 2008.
