The clothing and textiles curriculum is designed to help the student understand
clothing as it relates to the needs of individuals and families and to provide
training in the textile and apparel industries. A knowledge of textiles is em-
phasized as an aid to wide selection and effective use and care of clothes.
Expression of creative abilities is encouraged in the designing, selection, and
construction of clothing.

Careers open to majors in this field vary with individual aptitudes and ex-
perience and with the choice of appropriate courses from allied departments.
Professional opportunities are found in demonstration work, dress designing,
dressmaking, fashion illustration, fashion merchandising, fashion promotion,
garment manufacturing, institutional purchasing, textile designing, textile pro-
motion, textile testing, and theater costuming. Students may also prepare for
graduate study which can lead to positions in the fields of college teaching, re-
search, and extension services.

Selected junior and senior students in the department have the opportunity
to enhance their training in the area of textiles and textile technology by attend-
ing the North Carolina State University at Raleigh, North Carolina, for a se-
mester or one year. Students who are interested should contact the depart-
ment chairman.

Campus Couture, sponsored by the department, provides opportunity for
practical experience in designing and constructing garments for others. Majors
are strongly advised to seek employment at Campus Couture for at least one
semester. Employees are selected on the basis of their performance in clothing
construction and design classes and successful completion of Clo. and Text. 365.

Major Requirements

Majors are required to complete a minimum of 28 or more credit hours in
the Clothing and Textiles Department and are encouraged to take at least 1
course in each of the following supporting departments within the College of
Family Living: Child Development and Family Relationships, Food Science and
Nutrition, Environmental Design, and Family Economics and Home Management.
Students must also complete the general education requirements prescribed by
the University, including (6-12 hours) or math.-stat.-logic-sci. (6 hours) re-

Students may choose to graduate with either a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Those selecting Options 1 or 4 will receive
the Bachelor of Science degree. Those selecting Options 2 or 3 will receive the
Bachelor of Arts degree.

Transfer students should complete at least 10 credit hours of work in this
department to qualify for graduation.


In order to graduate, a student must maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.00,
with no hours of "D" credit in his major department.

Minor Requirements

Students who choose clothing and textiles as their minor field of study must
have their programs approved by this department. They must complete 14
credit hours, with at least one course in three of the following four areas:

1. Construction: Clo. and Text. 165, 235, 355, 365, 520R, 595.

2. Design and selection: Clo. and Text. 110, 221, 300, 345, 350.

3. History and economics: Clo. and Text. 330, 430, 472, 473, 474, 478.

4. Textiles: Clo. and Text. 260, 360, 490, 580, 594.


Four options, aimed at providing background and training for particular pro-
fessional opportunities, are included in the clothing and textiles major. These
are: (1) fashion merchandising, (2) fashion design, (3) clothing and textiles
and communications, and (4) general clothing and textiles.

Option One — Fashion Merchandising

The course work offered in this area is designed to provide specialized training
for those seeking positions such as buyer, assistant buyer, comparison shopper,
fashion coordinator, and fashion promoter.
