Although in years past, only doctors and Masters wore velvet tams, many professors / faculty members with master’s degrees
are now choosing to wear a velvet tam in place of the traditional mortarboard (used by students) as it is more comfortable
and further distinguishes the faculty from their students.

Unlike the doctoral tam/ Graduation Tam shown below with gold bullion tassel

We keep masters tams in stock in traditional black velvet, or can special make them in your choice of colors.

Most faculty members purchasing master’s tams/Graduation Tams choose the six sided model. However Eight sided tams are also available.

Most faculty members who have doctoral degrees purchase tams to differentiate themselves from students and non-doctors. However if you do not wish to purchase a tam, then we will be happy to send you a mortarboard and tassel at no charge, upon request.

We keep doctoral tams in stock in traditional black velvet, and can also make them in your choice of colors such as Red or Blue.

In general, the materials used for academic dress are heavily influenced by the climate where the academic institution is located, or the climate where the graduate will usually be wearing the costume (as a faculty member at another institution, for example). In either case, the American Council of Education (ACE) allows for the comfort of the wearer, and concedes that lighter materials be used in tropical climates, and heavier materials elsewhere.In addition, it acknowledges cotton poplin, broadcloth, rayon, or silk as appropriate.
