Apparel and Textiles Undergraduate Program
The apparel and textiles undergraduate program is designed to inspire students to envision fresh new approaches to the global challenges facing every aspect of the apparel and textiles industry. Our program of study gives our graduates the aesthetic, practical, technical, professional and intellectual skills needed for a variety of roles including design, technical design, sourcing, strategic planning, buying and various retail management and business management positions. Apparel and textiles program graduates are also prepared to attend graduate school. Recent graduates have gone on to pursue advanced studies at numerous universities in the United States, including Kansas State University, Angelo State University, Iowa State University, Colorado State University and the University of Missouri.
Our program offers students an academic experience that includes strong industry ties, required internships, faculty-led study tours within the United States and abroad, a bi-annual public exhibition of student work, and events that bring professionals and alumni to campus.
All apparel and textiles students complete the core professional curriculum and specialize in apparel marketing or apparel design and production. The apparel design and production specialization is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
