The School of Design and Engineering offers a five-year Bachelor of Science/Master of Science (BS/MS) program to qualifying students majoring in textile design. Students follow the BS in Textile Design program for the first three years. Graduate courses taken in the fourth year of undergraduate study are applied toward both the BS and MS degrees. The fifth year includes summer sessions, in addition to the fall and spring semesters.
The five-year program offers an opportunity for students wishing to further their design education through graduate-level studio work. The program focuses on design development on a more concentrated basis, and thus extends and expands students’ design skills and portfolio work (within their selected specialization) to a level not attainable through the undergraduate program.
Prior to the end of their junior year, Textile Design BS students must complete the following:
- Meet with their academic advisor from the Textile Design program to discuss their interest
- Contact Graduate Admissions to share their intention to enter the 4 + 1 degree program and to discuss the procedure for doing so
- Currently-enrolled undergraduate Textile Design students will be considered for admission if they have maintained at minimum a 3.0 GPA
- Textile Design BS students must complete a minimum of 120 unique undergraduate credits to receive their undergraduate degree.
