As the area’s premier institution of higher education, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has built a solid academic reputation for its challenging curriculum, renowned faculty and highly-rated degree programs. The University’s location on the Gulf of Mexico and on the cultural border with Latin America shapes its focus and provides the foundation for gaining national prominence and its designation as a Hispanic-Serving Institution.

Career opportunities, hands-on resources and faculty strengths become essential elements in choosing a university. Our students explore the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, perform on the finest stage in the Coastal Bend region, undertake study and research that improve lives and engage in partnerships with business. We’re an active campus where our students make all the difference.

Our professors are engaged in cutting-edge research and bring a real-world attitude into the classroom. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 19-to-1, students receive a personalized approach to teaching from highly-accomplished faculty, 90 percent of who hold the highest degree in their fields. And we’re part of The Texas A&M University System, a network of nine universities, seven state agencies and a comprehensive health science center.

It’s important for parents to take the lead in fostering their students’ academic success. Find out how to get involved with your son or daughter – every step of the way.
