Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is an expanding, doctoral-granting institution committed to preparing graduates for lifelong learning and responsible citizenship in the global community. We are dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, creative activity and service. Exploring the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, performing on the finest stage in the Coastal Bend and undertaking new research to improve the lives of those in our community form the enriching experiences offered at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Were an active campus where our students, faculty and staff make all the difference. Picture yourself in a tropical environment where top-notch academics and cutting-edge research are blended into a robust lifestyle. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is the only University in the nation located on its own island. With palm trees lining pathways throughout the 240acre campus, nearby natural wetlands and a pristine beach, weve become a first-choice destination for many students seeking a university that takes the lead, rather than follows.
