TEXAS COLLEGE IS a creative, culturally diverse, inclusive academic environment that prepares students who aspire to be purpose-driven, financially secure, and marketable leaders.
Founded in 1894 by ministers of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, Texas College prepares students with competencies in critical and creative thinking related to the knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined in areas of study. Additionally, the college inspires intellectual, spiritual, ethical, moral, and social development, empowering graduates to engage in lifelong learning, leadership, and service. To address the mission, Texas College incorporates the core values of academic excellence, integrity, perseverance, social responsibility, tolerance, and community service.
As a historically Black college, Texas College has provided accessible, quality education to all for more than 128 years. The college offers fourteen programs of study in the liberal arts and sciences, including twelve baccalaureate degree programs and two associate of arts programs. Students choose from one of four major divisions: business and social sciences, education, general studies and humanities, or natural and computational sciences. The college additionally meets the needs of nontraditional students with new distance learning options, designed for adult degree completion while fulfilling work or familial obligations.
