Educational courses have been developed to educate students on the impact of dress on society. In this thesis, surveys were used pre and post course to determine if self-perceptions related to dress practices underwent a change over the duration of the semester. Significant differences were found in the categories of body image, evaluating self-esteem, and communication of self to others. A relationship was found between survey responses and gender, degree of importance of clothing purchases, and how much money participants spend in the 365 days previous to the pre-course survey.
