The program emphasizes critical thinking across disciplines vital to success during and following formal education.The University offers a minor in Women’s Studies. Goals of the minor include helping student’s interpret concepts of gender and gendered identities in different social, cultural and political contexts.
We also participant in the Graduate Certificate Program. Graduate certificates are intended to meet the supplemental post-baccalaureate education needs of professionals. A graduate certificate program is a set of courses that provides in-depth knowledge in a subject matter. The set of courses provides a coherent knowledge base.
The Women's Studies Program also participates in offering a minor as part of the Master of Arts or Master of Science degree program in Interdisciplinary Studies and is intended for mature students who wish to continue education at the graduate level but do not seek specialized training concentrated in a major area. This program is designed for students with broader interests in several fields or for those whose career goals do not match fully with a single identifiable academic unit or department.Texas Tech University has also established several interdisciplinary minors or areas of emphasis available for students to enhance their interdisciplinary degree or any other master's or doctoral degree plans available on campus.
