A Reading Group for TTU Undergraduate Students

About the Program

The Political Economy Reading Program is a one semester, non-credit reading group where participants read and discuss selections from classic works and from contemporary scholars that address important questions in political economy. Participants that successfully complete the program receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The Politcial Economy Reading Program operates concurently at Texas Tech University and Angelo State University. Both groups examine the same set of readings and interact with one another at a summit hosted at Texas Tech University.

Participants meet weekly for discussions facilitated by a Texas Tech University or Angelo State University faculty member, whose role is to pose questions and encourage participation from each member of the group. More details about the current program can be found on the Poltical Economy Reading Program — Spring 2022 page or at the Spring 2022 link above. For information about previous reading programs, visit the McLane Teammates Reading Program page.

All undergraduate students, who have a full-time enrollment status at Texas Tech University or Angelo State University, are eligible and encouraged to apply. The spring 2022 program application link will be posted on this page once that information becomes available.
