Academic Heraldry The history of academic dress reaches back to the days of the oldest European and British universities. From the basic design of this attire, the American colleges devised a suitable symbolism for academic apparel. The bachelor’s gown has long pointed sleeves, whereas the master’s gown is distinguished by long oblong sleeves; the doctor’s gown is faced along the front with broad velvet panels and has full bell-shaped sleeves, each bearing three horizontal bars of velvet. It is the hood that gives color to the academic costume and identifies the degree awarded. The hood is silklined with the colors of the institution conferring the degree. Gold and white are the official colors of The College of Saint Rose. The hood is bordered with velvet of a prescribed width and color to signify respective fields of learning. For example, white for bachelor and master of arts, and golden yellow for bachelor and master of science. Caps worn with bachelor’s and master’s gowns generally have black tassels.
