AS ONE OF THE LARGEST and most diverse universities in Texas, The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is committed to student access and success and to a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship, and commercialization of discoveries by our community of scholars.
In 2021, UTA became just the fourth institution in Texas to achieve Tier 1 designation, a milestone of excellence in academics and research. That same year, it was again named to the elite group of R1–Very High Research Activity by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, the definitive list for the top doctoral research universities in the U.S.
UTA’s 46,000 students represent every U.S. region and more than one hundred countries. The university has the fifth-most ethnically diverse undergraduate population in the U.S., according to U.S. News & World Report. It is a Hispanic-Serving Institution and an Asian American-, Native American-, and Pacific Islander-Serving institution. In 2022, Military Times named UTA the fourth best university nationally for veterans and military members.
UT Arlington offers more than 180 bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs, including new programs in public health, resource and energy engineering, substance use and treatment, sustainable urban design, and learning analytics.
