About the Marketing Careers Program

marketing students and instructor

How to Get Started

To get started in the Marketing Careers program, complete the admissions process at Brookhaven College or Cedar Valley College for Business Marketing; or at El Centro College for Fashion Marketing. When you meet with an academic advisor, mention your interest in Marketing Careers so he or she can help you to determine which courses you should take.

If you are planning to earn an associate degree or certificate, please note that you must complete 25 percent of your degree requirements at the college awarding the degree.


Dallas County residents pay $177 per three-hour class — that’s $59 per credit hour, or just $708 for a full semester load of 12 credit hours.

Compare that to what you’d pay elsewhere! See tuition rates for tuition according to your place of residency.

Rising Star Program

If you are a Dallas County high school graduating senior, you may qualify for Rising Star funds to help pay for this program. The Rising Star program offers academic support services and up to $4,000 for tuition and books, if you have established financial need.

Other Degree and Certificate Options

The colleges of DCCCD offer nearly 350 career and technical degrees and certificates, plus more than 50 academic degrees. For more information, see a chart of our degree plans by college or visit our credit programs home page.

Developing Skills for Success

While you’re getting your education in Business or Fashion Marketing Careers, get on-the-job training in a marketing-related field with a sponsoring business. Cooperative education provides you with the work experience required to get the job you really want when you graduate.

Fashion Marketing students also complete volunteer projects in advertising, display, fashion shows and special events for small fashion retail businesses. The capstone experience for this program is cooperative education, in which students apply classroom knowledge and skills to fashion-oriented jobs in the local workplace.

Faculty Profiles

Our faculty members not only have advanced degrees but also have real-world experience in the business world, making them able to relate to the challenges you face at work.
