Education

Do you remember that special teacher—the one you looked up to and asked for advice? You can make the same kind of impression on others with a career in education. You'll spend almost as much time at the front of classroom as you do as a student in one.

Hands-on learning is a hallmark of the education program.

Why Texas Tech?


You'll get the guidance you need to reach your goals, like Beth Hubbard, BS/Multidisciplinary Studies, 2002. Beth was sure she wanted to be a teacher but wasn't sure about who she should teach. The field experiences she had at Texas Tech helped her ultimately choose the elementary level. Beth was named 2007 Teacher of the Year in the Plano, Texas, Independent School District.


"Instilling the value of education into my students at the elementary level is vital..."


Beth Hubbard, BS '02
