Information Day Scheduled for Texas Tech University's Bachelor's Degree offered in Abilene


November 09, 2010

On Nov. 16, 2010 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Texas Tech University's University College will hold an information day for residents interested in the Bachelor of Arts in General Studies (B.G.S.)or Bachelor of University Studies (B.U.S.), which can be either a bachelor of arts or science. Both degree programs will be offered in Abilene beginning Spring 2011.

Planned events include presentation sessions at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., as well as opportunities for personalized advisement. At presentation times, an advisor will provide general information about the degree programs offered. One-on-one advising sessions are available for interested students to ask questions and learn how their previously earned credits can apply toward a Texas Tech University bachelor's degree. Individual advising sessions are scheduled by visiting the Transition Center at Abilene, Schaefer Hall Room 4 or by calling 254.442.5022.

The degree programs Texas Tech University plans to offer in Abilene are unique because each allows students to choose three areas of concentration rather than the traditional major and minor. The resulting degree program is a unique combination, individualized to fit personal academic or career goals. Based on the unique needs of each student, University College advisors can determine which degree program will be a better fit.

Texas Tech University, in partnership with Cisco Community College, will offer the programs through a combination of online, face-to-face and Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC) delivery methods.
Prospective students can learn more about the Information Day and the bachelor's degree programs at or by calling 806.742.7200.
