Testimonial

Advance your career and improve your life.

"While earning my undergraduate degree, I never got to experience the benefits of completing a course online, but ever since I have begun pursuing an online master's degree, I have gotten to learn through an even more effective means. By pursuing my degree online, I am not confined to a single space for completing my work anymore. I am able to focus on my work without the distractions of a classroom, and I feel more engaged when I can work in a comfortable area that I'm familiar with. Working towards my online degree has helped progress my professional career by providing me with the flexibility to better divide my attention between my education and my professional work."

Joshua Blount '19, Master of Arts in Technical Communication

Testimonial

Life happens.

"I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in University Studies with concentrations in Human Development and Family Studies, Communication Studies and Sociology. My favorite part was the connections that I have made. I have had the opportunity to really get to know my professors, and I do not think that is something I would have been able to do in a large campus setting. I started working for Texas Tech University at Waco as the Administrative Assistant. I knew I wanted to work for TTU at Waco soon after I started the program because I saw the potential that it has and believe it will continue to grow, which will help people in achieving their academic goals. Being a non-traditional student, I know how hard it can be to start something new, especially when you have other commitments. I went back to school and finished for my daughter."

Alana Schaeper '17, University Studies

Take full advantage of the GI Bill.

Texas Tech's Military and Veterans Program is one of the best in the nation, as evidenced by our awards. Let us help you use your veterans benefits to complete your degree.

Testimonial

We appreciate your service.

"I attend Texas Tech University Higher Education Teaching Site at Waco and am earning my Bachelor's in University Studies with areas of study in Communications, Political Science, and Public Relations. I wanted to attend an amazing university that was well-known without having to change my life and move to a new location. I love to visit Lubbock and attend many student events while in town but Waco is just a much better option for my son and me. I recently interned at the Texas House of Representatives during their past legislative session and was offered a full-time position after the session. I will be working at the Capitol during the special session as well. I believe my degree from Texas Tech will allow me to achieve my career ambitions as an advocate for veterans and their families in the central Texas area."

Jade Cabrero-Doss, United States Air Force Veteran, '17, University Studies

Looking for a change of scenery?

We offer affordable options to get the education you need to start something new. Worldwide eLearning students pay Texas in-state tuition rates, regardless of location. This means you'll earn your degree online at a price that is very competitive, whether you live across town—or across the country.

Testimonial

Change your career.

"I love the flexibility that TTU Worldwide eLearning gives me! Working towards an online degree at Texas Tech (in University Studies with concentrations in Personal Finance, Organizational Leadership, and Psychology) has allowed me to pursue dance training programs across the nation and start a professional career. I can pursue an education and a career in dance at the same time! I dance 9-5 on weekdays and have the opportunity to pursue my degree around training, rehearsals and shows. I have been able to follow my passion around the U.S. in San Francisco, Portland, Chicago, Dallas and New York City. Without TTU Worldwide eLearning, I would not be able to live out my dream of being a professional dancer!"

Shannon Oleson '17, University Studies
