The Education Department of The Museum at FIT supports the museum’s mission of promoting original research, creative thinking, and lifelong learning among diverse and inclusive audiences. Every year, we provide unique programming with an interdisciplinary approach to fashion that offers insight and discovery, allowing visitors to apply what they learn from the museum’s collections and exhibitions to their own learning and experiences.
We design each season’s programs to ensure that we foster a culture of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion. Visitor feedback has reinforced our belief that audience members want to see themselves represented. The Museum at FIT is a living space that invites an interchange of knowledge, encouraging critical dialogue about fashion and its impact on the human experience.
Our symposia bring together curators, scholars, and fashion professionals to explore important themes in fashion.
The Museum at FIT partners with educational institutions to organize school programs geared toward students who range from kindergarten to college level.
The Museum’s rigorous internship program provides learning and research opportunities to graduate students.
