Texas A&M University - Kingsville

Texas A&M-Kingsville is South Texas' greatest university, offering more academic programs and degrees, providing better learning and living facilities, doing more research, awarding more scholarships and producing more successful graduates than any other college or university in the region.



Texas A&M University-Kingsville grew out of the teacher college or "normal school" movement that swept Texas and the nation in the early 1900s. Chartered in 1917 but not opened until 1925 because of America's entry into World War I, the University is the oldest continuously operating public institution of higher learning in South Texas. 


Texas A&M-Kingsville seeks to provide quality undergraduate and graduate programs for students of all ages through a judicious blend of liberal and career education programs.


The goal of undergraduate research is to involve students with the sense of excitement that comes from working to answer important questions in their field. As students feel more connected to their field through meaningful inquiries, they develop all the necessary abilities to complete their undergraduate program and continue their education through graduate school.
