College of Education News
The College of Education is transforming the way educators will impact our future. Our nationally recognized teacher preparation program features coursework that translates to practical classroom skills, a yearlong residency in a school district co-teaching alongside a skilled mentor teacher, and the use of state-of-the-art digital technology to record, review and improve instruction.
Our line of sister programs - TechTeach Across Texas and TechTeach Across Rural Texas - brings the innovative training model around the state, allowing aspiring educators to be prepared in their communities and in the classrooms where they will teach after graduation.
The College of Education at Texas Tech University offers dozens of master's, doctoral and certificate programs that cover the spectrum of educational disciplines. Our three graduate departments each have their own missions, vision, leadership, and unique culture.
