About the Program

The Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration offers two areas of emphasis: Community College Administration and Higher Education College/University Administration. The Ph.D. program is the only predominantly online program available within Texas public universities in the program area of higher education. Texas Tech makes continuing your education possible, no matter where "here" is. The program is structured in a cohort model and is only offered to begin in Fall semesters.

This program requires a blended delivery format. All coursework is completed online, but students are required to attend an on-campus new student orientation session and three (3) summer professional development sessions.

Qualified applicants should have full-time professional experience in either a public or private two-year or four-year higher education institution or state or federal educational agency serving higher education. Applicants must show a clear connection to higher education.
