History of graduation

Graduation started back in the 12th century in Europe. Possibly from scholastic monks. The tradition was adopted by the "universitas", which were guilds of masters. (MAs) The words "degree" and "graduate" come from the Latin word "gradus", meaning "step".

The current style of the graduation mortarboard cap appeared in the 15th century and is thought to have derived from the biretta, a square cap worn by certain clergy. In 1950 the modern design was patented by a catholic priest and inventor Edward O'Reilly.

The gowns and hoods (often brown or black) were worn by religious students to signify their status. And they also helped to keep the students warm in unheated buildings.
