Canyon, Texas

WEST TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY (WT) values high-quality education and the impact that it has on the life aspirations of students. WT students cultivate lifelong friendships and solidify values while building skills for success. Low tuition and challenging course offerings make a degree from WT both attainable and affordable for bright, motivated students regardless of their means.

WT offers sixty undergraduate degree programs, 38 master’s degree programs, and two doctoral programs. Students learn from top faculty in smart classrooms at both the Canyon campus and the Harrington Academic Hall WTAMU Amarillo Center, as well as online—WT pioneered online education in 1997. Partnership with The Texas A&M System makes possible such programs as the 2+2 veterinary program, allowing students to spend their first two years at WT for increased exposure to large animal needs in rural communities. Students also enjoy study abroad opportunities, research initiatives, leadership development programs, internships, numerous campus organizations, Division II athletics, and more.

The recently launched One West comprehensive fundraising campaign is designed to fuel WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World—a visionary, long-range plan to take West Texas A&M University through the year 2035, with the goal of becoming a regional research university.
