Courses and Majors

Many factors will influence your choice of a university.  Facilities, location, activities, and finances are all important.  All will contribute to your college experience.  If you are serious about education and about faith, your final choice will be an institution positioned to provide you with the courses, level of instruction, and support systems necessary to give you a competitive edge in your career field and even more importantly a view of the world that includes the truths found in God's word.

LeTourneau University will test you.  We will stretch your mind and challenge your ideas.  We will prepare you for the future.  You will learn to approach problems with confidence--from the predicament of the stalled engine at 10,000 feet to the syntax errors in your latest article.  We teach you how to learn, giving you the information and helping you develop the discipline you need to successfully confront the situations you will encounter outside the classroom.

Because we care, we wouldn't have it any other way.  LeTourneau University professors work for the sake of excellence.  It's not just a job.  Their mission field is the classroom, and their ministry is filled with an exceptional perspective and contagious enthusiasm that provides an unparalleled learning experience.

At LeTourneau University, we desire to make a difference.  This calling never ends--but it starts in the classroom.
