Bachelor’s and Master’s gowns

It is sometimes assumed that all black gowns are the same.  As the photos below illustrate, they are not.

Bachelor degree candidates attending Commencement at Husky Stadium must be wearing a black gown bearing the seal of the University of Washington.

The master’s gown does not carry the seal but is much different from the bachelor’s degree black gown. A long tail with a squared end is attached to each sleeve of the master’s gown.
