Community and Urban Studies Program

Copan NYC Lubbock Lights

The College of Arts & Sciences at Texas Tech University offers an interdisciplinary minor in community and urban studies. This program exposes students to a variety of perspectives on conditions and problems of urban life, including issues of economics, politics, race and ethnicity, law, poverty, crime, environment, physical and mental health, art and design, and others. The program is highly adaptable to each student's needs. Working with the director of the program, each student develops a targeted course plan that best supplements their major program of study and their future goals.

To complete the minor in community and urban studies, students must complete 18 hours of courses approved by the director. The course plan will be designed to target the student’s individual interests and to supplement the student’s major program of study.
