This degree is currently included in the NEBHE program for all New England states. Under this program, students study for in-state tuition rates + 75% after meeting the criteria* to transfer from University College into the College of Human Science and Services (the "degree-granting college"). This will typically occur during the sophomore year.
This degree is offered in conjunction with the College of Business Administration, which is AACSB accredited. The Textile Marketing program is thus the only such accredited program in the United States. It combines a major in textiles with courses that meet the degree requirements in the College of Business Administration. Textile Marketing graduates thus develop a knowledge of the market research, product development and sales functions of corporations producing fibers, yarns, fabrics and apparel, and for interiors and industrial customers.
