The graduate program in Textile Design at Thomas Jefferson University can be structured to fit students with any background, including:

  • those with no prior experience in any design field
  • those with a B.F.A. or B.A. in Fine or Studio Arts (without textile experience)
  • those with an existing degree in textile design including both technical and design aspects

The program director will individually review student portfolios, education levels and experience to determine which foundation courses are required in addition to the regular graduate curriculum. Students are only required to take textile design studio foundation courses in their selected concentration of knit, print or weave.

For students with prior graduate experience, with program director approval, up to 6 credits may be transferred in from previous graduate level study.
