AcademicsUndergraduate Majors

Textiles & Design Certificate

The Certificate in Textiles and Design allows students from any major to gain a fundamental understanding of the creative and innovative application of textiles and visual design.  By nature, textiles are interdisciplinary, weaving together art, commerce, history, culture, technology, material culture, and science.  Students will develop artistic and technical skills valuable for both pursuing a professional career in the textile industry and nurturing personal creative interests.
