Texas Tech University

Established in 1923, TTU and the TTU Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) comprise one of the four major universities in Texas. Situated on a 1,839 acre campus, TTU houses several undergraduate colleges, a Graduate School, and a School of Law. The TTU Health Sciences Center (adjacent to the Main Campus) houses schools of Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health. Undergraduate degrees are offered in over 150 majors; more than 100 graduate degrees are offered in over 70 programs. Historically, TTU was nationally known for its academic programs in Engineering and Agriculture; however, within the past 40 years all academic programs have been developed and staffed to equal emphasis. Students represent every state in the nation and more than 90 foreign countries. TTU has been attracting increasing numbers of National Merit Scholars and is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and by numerous professional societies. The TTU Athletic program is part of the Big Twelve Conference.
