Joint B.S. /M.S. Textile Design

The School of Design and Engineering offers a five-year Bachelor of Science/Master of Science (B.S./M.S.) program to qualifying students majoring in textile design. Students follow the B.S. in Textile Design program for the first three years. Graduate courses taken in the fourth year of undergraduate study are applied toward both the B.S. and M.S. degrees. The fifth year includes a summer session in addition to the fall and spring semesters.

The five-year program offers an opportunity for students wishing to further their design education through a year of graduate-level work. They are given the opportunity to work on design development on a more concentrated basis, and thus extend their design skills and portfolio work (within their chosen undergraduate specialization) to a level not attainable through the undergraduate program.

Application should be made through the Graduate Admissions Office during the junior year. Currently enrolled students will be considered for admission if they have maintained a 3.0 GPA. The GRE is required for full acceptance to the program and must be taken before the end of the senior year.
