Texas Tech growth of academic majors, college over the century

Author’s note: The enrollment rates are taken from the university Institutional Research Fact Book and count students enrolled in a program in each college which means students are counted twice or three times for dual degree programs or are in university studies. 

When the first 914 students enrolled at Texas Technological College, the only four schools available through the college were the School of Liberal Arts, School of Household Economics, School of Agriculture and School of Engineering.

Since then, the college has become a university and now boasts 13 colleges and schools and over 300 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degree programs.

Here is a brief synopsis of each college.

Gordon W. Davis, local businessman who spent 10 years as an associate professor in the college, and his wife, Joyce, have given a $44 million donation, which represents the single largest philanthropic donation to Texas Tech.

Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources

One of the first colleges at the university was originally named the School of Agriculture and saw 8,660 undergraduate and 1,245 graduate students enroll in one of its over 30 degree programs.

In 2022, the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported the college was gifted the largest philanthropic gift in the university’s history – $44 million. The gift was given by Gordan W. Davis and, his wife, Joyce Davis. It was an investment in the university, specifically in the college’s pursuit of academic excellence.
