Adults of All Ages Find Career Redirection at Moore

For Immediate Release
September 22, 2010

(Philadelphia, PA) Moore's Continuing Education Department is meeting the challenges of the current job market by offering certificate programs that prepare adults for career redirection in a select group of rewarding design fields: Digital Media for Print & Web, Fashion Studies, and Interior Design Studies. Fall Quarter classes begin October 4.

The Digital Media for Print & Web Certificate develops cutting-edge professional software skills for designing print publications and websites. The Fashion Studies Certificate focuses on skills in technical design and illustration, a large niche in today’s fashion industry. The Interior Design Studies Certificate enables participants to develop basic interior design skills applicable to a wide range of business opportunities. 

In the Digital Media Program, students with degrees in such areas as printmaking, marketing, and visual communications are acquiring the latest skills for print and web design. The Interior Design Studies Program is attractive to real estate lawyers, event planners, and textile designers seeking a new business specialty. The Fashion Studies Program attracts individuals working in many fields with an appreciation for fashion design and who are looking to acquire skills in technical design and illustration that will enable them to enter the industry.

Students from diverse backgrounds are interested in Moore’s programs because of their professionalism, efficiency, and convenience. Students may earn a certificate by attending class for two evenings a week for one year or at their own pace. Because each course meets only one night a week, adults with busy lives can still manage the time to create new career possibilities for themselves.

A tremendous benefit for Moore’s certificate students is that they have access to the college’s award winning Career Center for resume/portfolio advice and job search assistance, as well as access to resources that support professional development and enhance employment opportunities.

To register for classes, call 215-965-4030 or visit www.moore.edu
