Texas Tech University will host an open house for anyone interested in its Master of Public Administration program from 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday (June 9) in Holden Hall, Room 107.
The degree program’s once-a-week classes are scheduled in the evening, so it works well for both part-time students who have day jobs and full-time students. Applicants with administrative work experience may have the entrance exam requirement waived.
Focus areas within the program are:
It is not too late to be admitted for the fall semester. Information about financial aid will be available at the open house. Refreshments will be served, and free parking is available in the Holden Hall parking lot, R-14. From the Broadway entrance, take the first right onto Akron Avenue, then the first left into the parking lot.
The Texas Tech University College of Arts & Sciences was founded in 1925 as one of the university’s four original colleges.
Comprised of 15 departments, the College offers a wide variety of courses and programs in the humanities, social and behavioral sciences, mathematics and natural sciences. Students can choose from 41 bachelor’s degree programs, 34 master’s degrees and 14 doctoral programs.
With just under 11,000 students enrolled, the College of Arts & Sciences is the largest
college on the Texas Tech University campus.
In fall 2016, the college embarked upon its first capital campaign, Unmasking Innovation: The Campaign for Arts & Sciences. It focuses on five critical areas of need: attracting and retaining top faculty, enhancing infrastructure, recruiting high-potential students, undergraduate research and growing the Dean’s Fund for Excellence.
