AUSTIN COLLEGE IS a private liberal arts college located just north of Dallas in Sherman, Texas. An engaged and diverse student body of some 1,300 students live, play, and learn on a 100-acre campus that is close enough to Dallas and Fort Worth that students can easily take advantage of entertainment and internship opportunities while enjoying the perks of small-town living.

Experiential learning is a hallmark of Austin College. A 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio and average class size of 15 allows students to act as partners in learning with dedicated and expert faculty whose professional priorities are teaching and mentoring. Avenues to develop student strengths and talents abound, from mock trial and Model United Nations to management of a $1 million student investment fund, retail product lab development, and research opportunities.

More than 55 areas of study are available, including recently added programs in public health, East Asian studies, and physics engineering. The Austin Teacher Program allows future teachers to earn a bachelor's and a master's degree in four and a half years.

Global awareness is central to Austin College learning; two-thirds of students have an international study experience. The Global Outreach program sends students on self-designed summer service projects worldwide.

Austin College’s Presbyterian Church (USA) heritage cultivates an inclusive atmosphere that supports all students’ faith journeys and commitments, regardless of tradition or background.
