The Textiles minor serves as an excellent complement to almost any major. Students have the opportunity to enhance their hand skills as well as develop a sophisticated understanding of textile surface and structural processes in a variety of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design contexts. Within the subdivisions of Prints & Surfaces, and Woven & Non-Woven Structures, the courses have been established with the goal of providing a unique student experience that adds breadth and depth to problem solving and visual articulation through active tactile engagement.
