Live in the Present & Plan for the Future

Adapting and innovating.

Easy to say, but often hard to accomplish. The Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business at West Texas A&M University will launch two new degree offerings in fall 2024—a bachelor of science degree in hospitality and tourism management, and a master of science degree in strategic human resources management.

“As a university, you have to maintain a niche—unique reasons for enrolling at WT—and these two new degrees are examples of that,” said WT President Walter V. Wendler.

Both degree programs were approved in February by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents. Classes are expected to begin in fall 2024, following final approval by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

For the master’s degree in the rapidly changing field of human resources, the niche is the strategic component.

Those on the ground floor of curriculum believe WT will be one of only a handful to offer this component.

“We’ve done our research and as far as we can tell, there are only three other universities in the entire nation that have a master’s degree in human resources like this,” said Dr. Rahul Chauhan, associate professor of management and McCray Professor of Business. “Of those programs, our curriculum objectively and in my opinion is the most robust. It’s pretty unique. There’s really not that many programs like this nationwide, and none in Texas.”
