Textiles, Merchandising & Design Minor

The Textiles, Merchandising, and Design Program is a candidacy program and admission is required for those seeking a TXMD minor. Students may declare a minor in Textiles, Merchandising, and Design by specifying either an Apparel Design or Fashion Merchandising Concentration. 

Prior to applying for admissions, TXMD minors must complete the pre-admissions requirements, which consists of General Education and TXMD courses. Students then apply for admission to the TXMD professional sequence of courses. When a student applies for admission, is accepted, and becomes enrolled, he/she is then classified as a TXMD minor admitted to the program and can then progress in required TXMD professional sequence courses. TXMD minors must earn a grade of C (2.0) or higher in all TXMD courses. Students earning a D or F will be required to repeat the course before being allowed to advance in the program. 

For more information regarding admission specifics for TXMD minors, please contact TXMD Program Coordinator, Dr. Lauren Rudd at Lauren.Rudd@mtsu.edu. For more information on advising and scheduling for TXMD minors, please contact Rashidah Haynes at Rashidah.Haynes@mtsu.edu
