AT WEST TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY (WT), students have the WT experience—an opportunity to cultivate lifelong friendships, instill ethics, and solidify values while building skills for success. That, coupled with low tuition and challenging course offerings, makes a degree from WT both attainable and affordable for bright, motivated students regardless of their means.

The university offers sixty undergraduate degree programs, 38 master’s degree programs, and two doctoral programs—a Ph.D. in agriculture and an Ed.D. in educational leadership. Students learn from top faculty in smart classrooms at both the Canyon campus and the Harrington Academic Hall at WTAMU Amarillo Center. They also enjoy access to a variety of activities that contribute to the WT experience, including study-abroad opportunities, research initiatives, leadership development programs, internships, more than one hundred campus organizations, and Division II athletics.

More than $200 million in construction, renovations, and campus beautification projects over the past fifteen years have transformed the WT landscape. New and improved facilities, including the Agricultural Sciences Complex, a standalone WTAMU Amarillo Center, and an on-campus football Buffalo Stadium support the university’s commitment to excellence and contribute to the WT experience while serving a growing and diverse population of approximately ten thousand students.
