BS in Textile Product Science
The Bachelor of Science in Textile Product Science (TPS) prepares students to work in a global industry that includes fiber-engineered products for medical, geotextiles, architecture, fiber-reinforces composites and traditional apparel and home-furnishing applications. TPS program is comprised of thirteen (13) core textile courses, which delineate all TPS majors. The true interdisciplinary nature of Textile Product Science is realized in the student’s ability to select advanced work in one of the four, 9-course specializations.
Another dimension of the program will be to educate and graduate fully integrated individuals who possess the technical and social competence and confidence to succeed in professional practice and advanced education, be lifelong learners and exercise responsible stewardship.
The program focuses on the innovative global textile industry, including fiber-engineered products for medical, geotextiles, architecture, fiber-reinforced composites, and traditional apparel and home applications. In this program students have the opportunity to select one of 5 career-focused specializations and complete graduate level courses to transition into select Thomas Jefferson University graduate programs.
