The graduate degree in Textiles focuses on functional textiles, quality assurance, and textile science. For the textile science concentration, additional undergraduate general chemistry and introductory organic chemistry background is required.

The following courses are offered in support of the textile emphasis:

DHE 528 Apparel Production Process (3 credits)
DHE 553 Textile Product Quality Assurance (4 credits)
DHE 575 Global Production and Trade in Textiles and Apparel (4 credits)
DHE 585 Human Behavior and the Near Environment (3 credits)
DHE 685 Advanced Topics in Human Behavior and the Near Environment (3 credits)
DHE 502 Independent Study in Textiles (3-6 credits)
