POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • The university is one of only 139 institutions listed as an R2-high research activity campus by the Carnegie Commission on Institutions of Higher Education.
  • Lone Star UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) and NASA tested UAS Urban Traffic Management systems in summer 2019. The tests were conducted in only two sites in the country and Corpus Christi represented the largest test site.
  • The university is the first in the nation to offer an accelerated Bachelor of Science in nursing that integrates the arts disciplines across the curriculum.
  • In 2019, the university opened Tidal Hall Life Science Research Building, a hub of hands-on, applied research, from the undergraduate to doctoral level.

TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY–CORPUS CHRISTI, known as the Island University, is more than a destination location. It is the only campus in the nation located on its own island, and it is also recognized for its top-quality academic programs. Undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students choose from more than eighty degree programs including marine biology, mechanical engineering, nursing, education, art/graphic design, and theatre.

Students benefit from individualized experiences where faculty offer mentored research in more than forty centers and labs. At the Island University, tomorrow’s artists, teachers, scientists, athletes, engineers, and entrepreneurs explore ways to make an impact in their world.

Islander impact is felt around the world through the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies and its work to protect gulf ecosystems. The Conrad Blucher Institute is part of the United Nations’ Academic Network, and the Lone Star UAS Center of Excellence and Innovation is one of only seven FAA-unmanned aircraft systems test sites in the nation.

A historically Hispanic Serving Institution, the university provides a welcoming and supportive environment for students from 48 states and 57 nations.
