What is a Hooding Ceremony?
The hooding ceremony has its roots in midieval times and is held to recognize academic achievement. Students receiving a Master's degree wear the distinctive dress of academic regalia- a cap with a tassel, a robe and a hood. The color of the hood and tassel represent the specific are of study of the Master's candidate.
The Hooding and Graduation Ceremony provides FPA faculty and staff an oppurtunity to celebrate the achievement of both our bachelor's and master's degree recipients in a smaller, more personal ceremony.
It is both more intimate and shorter.
Yes! Absolutely! Please note that both undergraduates and graduates are asked to wear regalia to the University Commencement.
No! You are our guest.
I am receiving a master's degree and will be ordering regalia, what are my tassel and hood colors?
