The Graduate Group in Textiles offers a program of study and research leading to the M.S. degree. Students in the program are trained in an interdisciplinary approach emphasizing the physical and behavioral science aspects of textiles. Research areas include chemical, physical, biochemical, and mechanical properties of fibers and polymers as well as fibrous assemblies, including fabrics, composites, paper, and nonwovens; and psychological and sociological factors relating to perception and consumption of textiles and apparel. Extensive specialized fiber, polymer, and textiles research facilities and a behavioral research laboratory are available.
