The Major Program
The textiles and clothing major emphasizes the connections among (a) the physical characteristics of textile products, (b) human perceptions of and behavior toward these products, and (c) global economic trends affecting the textile/apparel marketplace. An integrative knowledge base links textile products with people and processes, to focus on the production, distribution, and consumer use of textiles and apparel; see also Fiber and Polymer Science.
The Program. The textiles and clothing major offers two options: textile science and marketing/economics. The Textile Science option provides students with a broad knowledge base in both the social and physical sciences. This base includes production, end-use applications and care of textiles and apparel, physical and chemical properties of textiles, and social-psychological and economic aspects of textiles and clothing. The Marketing/Economics option emphasizes social science and business course work, while also providing students with an awareness of the physical nature of textile products.
