About the Honors College



Honors College students have the unique advantage of experiencing an intellectually and socially vibrant environment while having access to the vast resources of a major research university at Texas Tech. Honors College students simultaneously benefit from being with others of the same intellectual preparation and commitment while enjoying the advantages of a university environment actively engaged in exploring all areas of human interest and concern.


All students who are admitted to Texas Tech and the Honors College also enroll in a disciplinary college and pursue one or more of the 150+ available majors and concentrations, including one major housed within the Honors College, Honors Sciences & the Humanities. Their education is the result of the integration of all colleges at TTU, including the Honors College, and cultivates the talents and interests of Honors College students while meeting their changing needs as they develop academically and socially.
