The Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design (AMID) consists of programs that examine consumer-oriented and aesthetic components of the near environment. AMID offers three degree objectives: Apparel Merchandising B.S., Interior Design B.S., and Fashion Design B.A.
The IU Center for Art + Design (IUCA+D) is a new addition to the Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design. A unique collaborative initiative of Indiana University and the Columbus, Indiana community, IUCA+D was created to develop and promote the comprehensive integration of art and design.
The Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design is home to The Elizabeth Sage Historic Costume Collection, which consists of more than 24,000 objects of women's, men's, and children's clothing, dating from the late eighteenth century to the present day.
The graduate degree program is dormant at this time; however, groundwork has been laid for the reinstatement of the program as soon as Fall 2014.
