About

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Fibers and Material Studies program at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University introduces students to a bold, interdisciplinary approach to the exploration of one of the world's oldest and most accessible traditions: working with fibers. 

Overview

Program Overview

Students of the Fibers and Material Studies program at Temple University explore the expressive potential and social meaning of fiber materials as they learn technical skills that prepare them for focused, graduate-level study and a variety of careers.

Tyler Fibers & Materials Studies majors join a close-knit, inclusive community led by a strong, diverse faculty that pushes students to experiment and collaborate. Students learn traditional skills and activate them in a contemporary context, contributing to vital discussions on history, identity, current social issues and more. Through dynamic events and projects such as the annual Wearable Art Show and the Natural Dye Garden, Fibers & Materials Studies majors create exciting conversations with artists and students throughout Tyler.

Students take full advantage of Philadelphia's vibrant fibers community and DIY scene and opportunities to engage global social challenges, working closely with professors to engage in community-based projects that challenge them as critical, reflective participants in a broader creative culture. These experiences prepare Fibers & Materials Studies majors to flourish in top graduate programs and production design careers.
