Graduate School

Professor David J. Schmidly, Dean

Graduate study is much more than a continuation of undergraduate work. It is distinguished by the spirit of inquiry and the desire to increase human knowledge. Graduate study should be contemplated, therefore, only by students who have demonstrated in their undergraduate programs unusual intellectual ability and the capacity for independent thought and investigation. For this reason, nearly all graduate schools exercise some type of selectivity in their admission of students. Selective entrance requirements are partly for the maintenance of high standards that must characterize graduate study and partly for the benefit of students in helping them decide whether they should undertake such work.

The Graduate School of Texas Tech University recognizes its obligations to the standards mentioned above and to the citizens of Texas by requiring appropriate evidence of an applicant's intellectual ability and reserves the right to decline to accept any applicant whose admission would not be to his or her best interest or that of the University.

For more particulars and details on courses and degree requirements refer to the Graduate Catalog.
