A bachelor’s degree is a type of program available to secondary school graduates. It is a path to increasing one’s store of life knowledge and skills as well as a possible route to increased earning potential and employment satisfaction during one’s working years.

What is a Bachelor in Textiles? This program generally has multiple tracks including preparation for apparel design, textile conservation, museum studies and merchandising and consumer sciences. Course topics can include screen printing, weaving and garment production, conservation methods, upholstery design and fiber studies. Fashion show production and industrial science, including 3D design and the use of technology to develop new materials, are other special focus areas in a broad-based education in textile studies.

A solid understanding of textiles can lead to absorbing work across many industries. Collaboration to produce a shared vision is an essential skill that is highly transferrable. Understanding materials and how to care for them and how design informs consumer behavior are both important professional and life skills.

It is important to find the right program. A bit of research on affordability, length of study and physical location is vital in making a wise choice for a fulfilling educational journey. Consider the accreditation status and reputation of the institution granting the degree and placement statistics to optimize employment opportunities.

A degree in textiles may open doors to professional careers in fashion design and merchandising of apparel. Retail buyers may possess textile degrees, and graduates may also attain positions in museums as textile conservators or curators of collections. Graphic designers and printmakers are often trained in textile programs, and many graduates seek advanced studies and become lecturers and post-secondary instructors.

Whether the preference is for an on-campus commitment, commuter status or online enrollment, there are countless ways to pursue an undergraduate degree. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
