Apparel Construction and Design Certificate


a peek inside the costume shop

The Department of Theatre is excited to announce a new collaboration with the Department of Marketing and Merchandising in the College of Business: the Apparel Construction and Design Certificate Program.


Open to students of all majors as well as non-degree-seeking adults, the program offers a guided four-course tour through both sides of apparel design, from hands-on construction to merchandising.


Our university photographer, Kelly Dunn, took a tour of the costume shop over in the theatre department, and caught these amazing shots of students conceptualizing, drawing, sewing, and fitting costumes that will be used in future Southern Miss theatre productions.
