University of the Southwest is a private inter-denominational four-year educational institution located in Hobbs, New Mexico. It was incorporated under its current name in 1962, although the college existed several years prior to that as a two-year Baptist institution.
The college offers baccalaureate degrees in education, business administration, sport management, criminal justice, psychology, and others. In addition, the college awards the master's degree in a variety of educational disciplines including business, counseling, special education, and bilingual education.
In March 2008 school's Board of Trustees voted to change the official name of the college from College of the Southwest to "University of the Southwest" to better convey what the college has become and where the trustees see it going. The change will be implemented in phases over the coming year.
