The Department of Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies (CARS) is one of five departments in the School of Human Environmental Sciences (HES): Interior Architecture, Human Development and Family Studies, Nutrition, Social Work, and Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies.We believe that the route to excellence is to focus the course of study under the close supervision of qualified faculty. Faculty are involved in teaching, research, and service where they spend a significant amount of time advising and mentoring students. Faculty serve related professional organizations in leadership capacities and contribute their expertise on editorial boards of professional journals.The Department offers Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees.Two concentrations are offered: Apparel Products Design prepares students for careers in apparel and textile products design and production. Retailing and Consumer Studies prepares students for careers in apparel marketing, distribution, and retailing.?Practical learning experiences complement our academic programs. Our student internship program prepares students for the real world and provides the industry with well-trained employees. Students begin preparation for their internship during their junior year with a pre-internship course. This course helps them to become aware of current trends and developments in the industry as well as prepare professionally.The Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies Department was one of the first [departments] of its kind to establish an industry Advisory Board which provides a link between the Department and the industries that will employ our graduates. Made up of 20 members who represent major companies in the Southeast, the Board provides advice relative to curricular offerings, technological developments, job placement and industry trends.
