The Texas Tech University system offers online classes covering more than 40 different degree programs as of June 2015. Examples include General Microbiology, Introduction to Art, French III, Introduction to the Study of Language, Elementary Statistics and the Political Economy of East Asia at the Angelo State University campus and courses in Nuclear Engineering, Personal Finance, Human Resource Development and Healthcare Engineering at the Texas Tech University main campus. Students can also take online courses through the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso.
The Texas Tech University System's online distance education program allows students from around the world to take courses at the institution without leaving their home. Courses can be taken by non-degree students or through a program leading to a certificate, bachelor's, master's or doctoral program. Some programs, such as the Master of Science in Systems and Engineering Management, are completely online, while others, such as the Doctor of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction program, offer a blend of online and on-site courses. The syllabus for each course is typically posted online, such as Angelo State's Principles of Accounting class, so students can learn more before registering. Online courses are then conducted through the Blackboard system. Courses can also be taken at regional sites, which can require some face-to-face instruction at that location.
