Costume Design

A Bachelor in Costume Design is a great choice for students who desire a career in the production of costumes for stage and film. This postsecondary degree allows students to learn the basics of clothing and textile history while also studying overlapping areas such as lighting, scenery and makeup.

 

As a prospective costume design student, you may have wondered, what is a Bachelor in Costume Design? Normally, this is an eight-semester course of study that teaches students to collaborate with other professionals involved on the set of theater productions. Students use the school’s theater productions as a laboratory for their designs. By the time they graduate, students may have complete portfolios of the designs they created.

 

Majoring in costume design affords students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in all the components of a theater production while getting the chance to bring their own designs to life. Students can develop their skills in drawing, design, draping and other related areas. They can also have the benefit of professional feedback throughout their course of study.

 

Costs of earning this degree vary depending upon factors such as where the student chooses to study, the length of the program and living arrangements. Prospective students should do their research to select a program that best suits their needs.

 

Upon completion of the costume design program, individuals may have the most critical items needed to enter the field: a completed portfolio and experience in designing for actual productions. The next step may be to accept an internship with a theater to gain experience outside of a school setting. Graduates may also find entry level jobs as wardrobe assistants, or they might work as costume designers at the community theater level. As they continue to gain experience, graduates will likely move on to bigger productions.

 

There are many opportunities to study costume design worldwide. Since this course of study is very hands-on, students will likely attend most of their classes on campus. However, they may find they can meet some of their requirements through a combination of classroom and online study.
