Overview

As an Alum of the department, I am proud to say we provide a high-quality education with a world-class faculty. While located in the far southwest tip of the state of Texas, our faculty and students are visible across the country and around the world in major conferences, performance venues, and leading academic journals.

UTEP is located in El Paso at the Western tip of the state. In fact, we are in a different time zone than the rest of the state. With our Mexican sister city Juarez, whose population is 1.8 million, these two cities combine to form the largest binational metropolitan area in the world. The cost of living is very reasonable as is the cost of your education.
