The world of today, and surely that of tomorrow, is characterized as one of constant change, uncertainty and greater connectivity through technology. It is also a world of great beauty and bounty; a world that has forever been impacted by the creativity of humans. Programs at West Texas A&M University have been designed to prepare individuals to thrive in this dynamic, global environment, to appreciate the creativity of humans and to acquire the skills to contribute to ongoing creative processes.
