The Office of the Provost coordinates all programs offered at regional sites in El Paso, Fredericksburg, Highland Lakes (Marble Falls), Junction, and Waco. Programs at these sites provide distance students with opportunities to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees with a blended delivery of face-to-face, interactive video conferencing, Microsoft Lync, and online classes. Students may complete their degrees without the need to relocate or travel long distances from their homes and work.
Texas Tech University partners with regional community colleges for lower-division coursework and offers upper-division courses to complete a bachelor's degree at the TTU regional sites. Graduate degrees are also offered through participating colleges at Texas Tech.
Students pursuing degree programs at TTU regional sites are held to the same entrance requirements as students at the Lubbock campus. Courses, curriculum, and graduation requirements at each site meet the same standards as those in Lubbock.
The TTU regional sites offer the following concentrations (minors) in the B.G.S, the B.A. in University Studies, and the B.S. in University Studies degree programs: agricultural leadership; business administration; biology; communication studies; English; exercise and sport sciences; history; horticultural and turfgrass sciences; human development and family studies; human resource development; integrative studies; journalism and visual media; mathematics; natural resource management; nutrition; personal financial studies; plant and soil science; restaurant, hotel, and institutional management; sociology; technical communication; and wind energy.
Not all concentrations are available at each regional site. Visit with one of the advisors at the regional sites to determine what minors or areas of concentrations are available at each site. The B.G.S degree does require that at least two of the concentrations be within the College of Arts and Sciences.
