Fashion Design, Design & Merchandising and Product Design

For two exciting weeks, come live on our campus and explore “hands-on” the fields of Fashion Design, or Design & Merchandising. You will attend classes taught by Drexel faculty studios and labs used by our very own students. In studios will spend valuable time sketching and designing products, projects, and more. Field trips will give you an insider's look at top retailers, designer boutiques and yes, even upscale merchants to discover where fashion and merchandising meet. You will even get to create the beginnings of your own personal design portfolio that can play an important role in applying to college.

Eligibility: We welcome high school students who are 16 years of age who have completed their sophomore year by the start of the program. We encourage anyone who is excited about design to apply and we limit the program to 16 students.

Music Industry

Music is more than your favorite performer. Behind that microphone are teams of professionals writing the songs, mixing the sound, promoting the artist, booking venues, signing new talent, and crafting every aspect of what you hear.

Our summer program is designed to introduce you to the music industry as a whole through a one week intensive workshop. The courses offered are based upon our degree curriculum and are taught by our faculty of industry professionals. Through the classroom, hands-on studio experience in our recording lab facilities, performance opportunities, lectures, and guest speakers, you will gain valuable insight into this dynamic field.

"The Drexel Summer Music Program gave our son a concrete view of what is available for him in terms of career options, areas of study, and, most of all, a life that includes his interests with the ability to make a living. - Mother of a former Summer Music Industry Program student
