Texas Tech University Overview
Texas Tech University offers more than 100 undergraduate, over 100 masters and 50 doctoral degree programs, and is in the midst of the most exciting time in the school’s history. As the university embarks on becoming the state’s next national research university, the opportunities for students could not be greater.
Even with an enrollment of more than 36,000 students, the University prides itself on retaining the feel of a smaller institution where students boast of one-on-one interaction with top faculty. The University strives to foster an environment that celebrates student accomplishment above all else. Texas Tech is large enough to provide the best in facilities and academics, but small enough to focus on each student individually, with a commitment to enhancing the cultural and economic development of the community, state, nation and world. Texas Tech students come from almost every county in Texas, all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries.
