does it relate to journalism(fashion) at all???xx
Yes it does, but Fashion Communication with Promotion is also a great course for getting into any of the magazine/media-side of fashion, anything from photography, event management to journalism is covered, and you're also taught a good amount of history by Judith Watt, who is fantastic.

Is is possible to transfer to CSM for the Master's program? I was also thinking that maybe I should graduate with my BFA at Parson's and then just apply to CSM for Master's...is that possible?
Should be fine, you don't have to go to the same school as your BA/whatever to MA. As long as you get Louise Wilson's approval you'll be fine !

I don't see any reason why this wouldn't be ok. Going for a masters is not a transfer. So long as you have a good undergraduate grade and a strong portfolio then you'll be fine. Especially coming from a good school yourself.

I couldnt tell you which one is better as I only study FCP, but I think either are a good way in. History obviously involves a lot of rigorous research and a large backhistory of fashion to learn, but at least then you'll be incredibly well educated on the subject and easily capable of writing about it.
Fashion Comms includes other media outputs too, so its not just about writing, but its certainly a key part of our course.

Also, I wouldnt just aim to have a 'career' in fashion journalism,
I mean, a lot of the best will earn a living from it, but most of todays writers are freelance or write for favours etc.
It's a lot of free work basically.

^ That's what I thought :3 That's why I chose to just study Journalism (in general) at UAL; I haven't majored into, say, Fashion or Sports. I'm hoping it'll keeps doors open for me.

He attended the MA program. From what I've heard he was applying to be a pattern cutting tutor and the head of the MAs encouraged him to get that instead. And the rest is history...

He criticizes his time there, saying he spent most of his time in the coffee shop....
