Academic Dress
The tradition of the academic costume apparently began during the
twelfth or thirteenth century in the early European universities. Since
the clergy comprised the majority of the educated class, academic
dress is an adaptation of the cope or mantle, which was usually silk or
wool, and worn by church dignitaries in religious processions.
Through the years, great diversity developed in color and in style
of cap, gown and hood. In 1896, the colleges and universities in the
United States adopted a uniform code governing academic dress.
The oxford cap, usually referred to as a mortar board, has a long
tassel that is fastened by a button on the top. The color of the tassel
on the cap indicates the field of study.
