Opened in 1876 as Texas' first public institution of higher learning, Texas A&M University is a research-intensive flagship university with 38,000-plus undergraduates and more than 9,000 graduate students studying in over 250 degree programs in 10 colleges. Students can join any of 800 student organizations and countless activities ranging from athletics and recreation to professional and community service events.
This research-intensive flagship university with 10 colleges was recently ranked first in the nation by The Washington Monthly for "tangible contributions to the public interest." U.S. News and World Report ranked Texas A&M third nationally as a "best value" among public universities. Many degree programs are ranked among the top 10 in the country.
Texas A&M operates two branch campuses and two overseas centers.
Texas A&M University at Galveston , with an enrollment of about 1,700, offers 10 marine-oriented bachelor's degrees and a master's in marine resources management. The campus opened in 1964, and degrees are awarded from Texas A&M University. The Texas Maritime Academy , one of six seacoast maritime academies in the U.S., provides an opportunity for students to learn how to operate and maintain an ocean-going vessel. At the conclusion of the program, graduates can become licensed as officers in the U.S. Merchant Marine or serve in the U.S. Naval Reserve or U.S. Coast Guard Reserve.
In 2003, Texas A&M and the Qatar Foundation for Science and Community Development entered into an agreement to bring Texas A&M's top-ranked engineering programs to the Middle East by establishing a branch campus in Doha, Qatar, funded by Qatar Foundation. Today, Texas A&M University at Qatar enrolls more than 350 engineering students from more than 20 countries and recently moved into one of the largest and most advanced engineering education facilities in the world.
The university offers more than 120 undergraduate degree programs and 240 master's and Ph.D. programs, as well as a doctorate in veterinary medicine. With this comprehensive selection of majors and numerous extracurricular activities to hone their skills in academics, leadership and public service, a college experience at Texas A&M results in highly sought-after graduates and solid world citizens.
