Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics with an Emphasis in Pre-Engineering

The university is part of a cooperative program that enables its students to earn a BA in Mathematics with an emphasis in pre-engineering and a BS in Engineering from Texas Tech University (TTU) or West Texas A&M University (WTAMU). The first five semesters are taken at Lubbock Christian University and the remaining semesters are taken at one of the partnership universities. The BS in Engineering from TTU or WTAMU must first be earned to apply for the Lubbock Christian University degree.

During the second year at Lubbock Christian University, students must apply for and obtain admission to the TTU or WTAMU engineering programs. Other courses may be advised by TTU or WTAMU when a field of engineering is selected. Deviations or substitutions must be approved by the program coordinator at Lubbock Christian University.
