    The Department of Apparel, Textiles, and Interior Design focuses on meeting human needs through the analysis, design, production, and evaluation of components in the near environment.

    Programs leading to a bachelor of science degree are: apparel marketing and design with specializations in apparel marketing and in apparel design and production, interior design, and textiles. Students are encouraged to participate in field experiences and internships to bridge the academic and the practical.

    The department offers a minor in apparel and textiles. Courses in the minor will give the student a background in textile science and knowledge of the industry and careers.

    Facilities include well-equipped studios and laboratories for interior design, housing, apparel design and production, and textile analysis. An extensive historic textiles and costume collection, housed in a climate-controlled storage facility in Justin Hall, is available for study. A universal design facility provides opportunities for students to see design improvements for people with special needs.

    Students in all programs have opportunities to study abroad and participate in field trips and study tours to design, production, and retail market centers across the U.S. and internationally. Student chapters of professional organizations, such as the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC), and Apparel Marketing and Design Alliance offer opportunities for leadership and involvement.

    Apparel marketing and design
    Bachelor of science in apparel and textiles

    The apparel marketing and design program prepares graduates for professional careers in apparel design, apparel manufacturing, and the retailing industries. Apparel design students develop creative and analytical skills necessary to solve complex design problems. Students in apparel manufacturing and retailing develop the necessary competencies to become resourceful business leaders. The program provides detailed practical experience and a solid base for graduate studies.

    Course work for all majors includes a foundation in liberal and general studies, including written and oral communications, mathematics, and computer science; textile and apparel evaluation; social, cultural, historical, and psychological aspects of apparel; apparel design, production, and marketing; and analysis of textile, apparel, and retailing industries.

    Interior design
    Bachelor of science in interior design

    The interior design program is a four-year, professional curriculum accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). It provides the competencies required to meet the qualifications for the professional title of interior designer.

    Interior designers identify, research, and creatively solve problems related to the function of interior environments in order to enhance quality of life and protect public health, safety, and welfare. Interior designers perform services such as programming, design analysis, space planning, preparing drawings and documents, and jobsite inspection using specialized knowledge of aesthetics, furnishings, interior construction, building systems and components, building regulations, equipment, and materials.

    The interior design program emphasizes the interaction between humans and their near environment, that is, the design of interior spaces that enhance user satisfaction, productivity, and safety at all stages of the life cycle. Students are provided with the creative, aesthetic, and technical skills necessary to translate a design concept into three-dimensional reality. Students develop competencies in problem-solving, interior space planning, selection and specification of interior furnishings and finishes, effective graphic and verbal presentation skills, and execution of contract documents.

    Entering students participate in joint first-year courses with students in the College of Architecture, Planning, and Design.

    Admission
    Admission to the interior design program is selective and limited. High school applicants who seek admission to the program must submit an application for university admission and an official sixth- or seventh-semester high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores. Transfer students must submit an application for university admission and all college transcripts. Application materials may be obtained by contacting the Office of Admissions.

    Students are required to successfully complete a portfolio review of their accumulated design work. The review normally occurs prior to March 1 of the second year of study and must be passed before enrollment in IDH 425 Space and Activity Planning II.

    Supervised internships, study abroad opportunities, study tours in the United States, and participation in the student chapters of the American Society of Interior Designers, and the International Interior Design Association, enhance the program.

    Textiles
    Bachelor of science in apparel and textiles

    Students in the textiles program emphasize either textile science or textile chemistry by choosing the appropriate professional and supporting courses. The textile science emphasis is for students interested in the consumer aspects of the textile industry and includes quality control, fiber and fabric development, and textile testing. The textile chemistry emphasis incorporates course requirements for traditional chemistry majors, while providing students with a specialization in an applied field. Textile chemistry leads to careers in research and development with the textile industry.

    The textiles program is being revised. Contact the department for current degree requirements.
