Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

Texas Tech has a wonderful philosophy of empathy for its students. I was afforded multiple travel, conference participation, and professional development opportunities. The emphasis on teaching as well as theatrical production was invaluable at TTU. I feel as though my personal success was paramount to my professors, and I made many invaluable connections while pursuing my Master's of Fine Arts.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

Texas Tech provided a rigorous master's program in special education. The professors were experts in their field, and they were effective teachers in disseminating information to students. I felt well-prepared to apply the theory and information I learned through courses at Texas Tech to my real-world career.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The Educational Leadership EdD at Texas Tech is is aligned with the core principles of the Carnegie Project for Education Development (CPED) national initiative. It is designed for for educational practitioners who are full-time professionals. As primarily a distance learner, I still have the benefit of a cohort as well as scheduled face to face learning opportunities with my cohort members at Texas Tech in Lubbock. It truly is the best of both worlds. It is extremely important to me to be able to continue working full time and pursue a doctorate from a top tier university. I have benefited greatly from learning with and from my cohort members who are working as leaders in public school districts of varying sizes all over the state.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The Texas Tech M.Ed Higher Education online program may be new, but it comes from a robust classroom curriculum. Many of the courses are based on the very same courses doctoral students are also taking, so you know you'll be able to graduate as the best scholar-practitioner you can be. As many of us are working professionals, the only way to pursue a masters is part-time and online. This program allows for both!

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

Although I have just started my graduate program at Texas Tech, I am already overly confident in my decision to further my education. The Personal Financial Planning program provides students with the courses that allow them to be eligible to sit for the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exam and many additional courses that will help them in the profession. I am very pleased with how this program is set up because it allows everyone the opportunity to be highly knowledgeable before entering the industry. Most financial planners today are around 50 years of age, or even older. These advisors are seen as highly credited because of their years of experience. I thought pursuing the program would not only help me sit for the CFP exam, but also give me some more experience in the industry that future clients could take into consideration.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: World class faculty, supportive environment, a lot of collaboration Cons: Few research opportunities, a lot of teaching, faculty overwhelmed with graduate student loads for advising
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2019

The graduate school helps you to achieve what you want, as long as you try to be involved in the process. All of the scholars are very busy with research, so they can be difficult to access if they are at a busy point in their research.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty are always willing and available to support students in every way one will understand the course. Needed materials are always available to help in learning but in all more working spaces are needed to increase effectiveness.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the graduate program I am currently in could be better. I feel that a majority of the professors do not communicate adequately with their students when it comes to expectations and assignments, and the quality of the work is lacking. I do not find that to be the case with all of my classes, but more than half. I am a distant-education student, so communication is important to me since I am not on campus often. I rarely receive responses from my advisor, I typically end up emailing other contacts to find the answers I am looking for. Overall campus communication is great, I receive updates on events daily and tons of ways to participate with things going on. I think my particular graduate department is just lacking.
