Students transferring from other programs or from community college should consider the General Curriculum track. Eighteen credit hours of advised electives are taken in place of the specified courses for a concentration. Students are encouraged to select courses that will fulfill an academic minor. Students should consult with their advisor if they would like some of their transfer credits to be considered as transfer credits. Most 300 and 400 level courses within the Wilson College of Textiles will also fulfill this requirement.
The program encourages students to pursue their personal academic goals through summer internships, study abroad programs, product development projects, and undergraduate research.
