Texas A&M opened its doors in 1876 as the state's first public institution of higher learning. Today, we stand as a research-intensive flagship university dedicated to sending Aggie leaders out into the world prepared to take on the challenges of tomorrow.
Located in the heart of the Houston-Dallas-Austin triangle, within a two-hour drive of 26 million of the state’s 28 million residents, Texas A&M's main campus in College Station is home to more than 62,500 students. Another 5,700 are at the branch campuses in Galveston and Qatar and other locations across Texas.
With more than 130 undergraduate degree programs, 170 master's degree programs, 93 doctoral degree programs and 5 first professional degrees as options for study, Texas A&M is full of possibilities.
Texas A&M looks to lead by example in everything we do. Our aim is to set the standard as the world-class university of the future by combining knowledge, research, and innovation to create solutions that few institutions have the depth and breadth to achieve.
Texas A&M University's purpose is to develop leaders of character dedicated to serving the greater good. An Aggie's character can be described using our university's six core values: excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service.
