Texas Tech University

Lubbock, Texas

TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY is an institution like no other. One hundred years after its founding, it’s one of the nation’s leading research universities, with an academic reputation recognized globally, but it also prides itself on its distinctly West Texas sensibilities. Here, values like integrity, authenticity, and grit matter every bit as much as subject expertise.

Located in Lubbock (pop. 263,930), Texas Tech students enjoy a small-town sense of community surrounded by big-city amenities. The university offers more than 150 undergraduate degrees, one hundred graduate degrees, and fifty doctoral degrees. It’s home to a law school and the first new veterinary school in Texas in over a century.

Year after year, research and enrollment numbers continue to set new records, supported by Texas Tech’s diverse, highly revered pool of faculty who excel in teaching, research, and service.

Texas Tech is one of only 21 institutions designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution that is also categorized as an R1–Very High Research Activity by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
