The Masters of Science in Textile Design provides both integration and balance between creative design and technology. The Design studio courses make up the majority of the coursework in the M.S. program.Design research is stressed from the beginning. Being in a major city is a great resource as is The Design Center at Philadelphia University with its textile collection from around the world.

Students are required to specialize in one area (knit, print or weave), but are encouraged to incorporate the other areas of textile design through their foundation courses, elective or design studio work. Those with fiber arts backgrounds will be able to further their design skills through a greater understanding of textile materials and the use of the latest technology. Those with technological design experience will be encouraged to develop their creative ideas within the environment of the design studio.

Each graduate student mounts a Graduate Exhibition of his or her work as a requirement for graduation. Held in Paley Design Center, these expositions showcase each student's area of individual exploration and concentration.
