Texas A&M’s rare triple designation as a land-, sea- and space-grant institution reflects the broad scope of our research, which includes ongoing projects funded by prominent and diverse agencies such as NASA, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. In fact, research done by Aggie faculty and graduate students has been cited nationally for “tangible contributions to the public interest.”
Our faculty includes winners of the Nobel Prize, Wolf Prize and National Medal of Science. Learn from experts at the top of their fields while pursuing your passion.
How you share your work is almost as important as the work itself. Texas A&M offers a robust professional development program to give you the tools to continue excelling after graduate school.
When you become an Aggie, you join a lifelong family that understands the value of loyalty, camaraderie and unconditional support. The relationships you build with your peers, professors, staff and the larger Aggie network are the foundation of your support structure at Texas A&M. They are enhanced by wellness initiatives, academic advising, funding opportunities and a wealth of other resources to ensure you succeed throughout your program and beyond.
There are many opportunities to fund your graduate education at Texas A&M. Explore our funding page to learn more about fellowships, research or teaching assistant positions, and other financial aid opportunities.
Part of what makes the Aggie family great is the diversity of persons, views and experiences that it comprises. Everything from classroom discussions to research topics are viewed through a fuller lens when students and faculty from varying ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, geographic residencies and cultural experiences are part of the conversation.

Texas A&M’s main campus is located in Bryan-College Station, Texas. The twin cities of Bryan and College Station have served as the adopted hometown for generations of Aggies. Both cities have grown exponentially just as Texas A&M has grown, and each is a welcoming, diverse community that continues to grow and thrive. And it’s considered one of the best places to live in Texas, according to Niche.com, based on cost of living, quality of public schools, job opportunities, crime rate and local amenities.
LIVING IN BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION
Because of the emphasis that Texas A&M places on research and learning, there are numerous nationally recognized centers, labs and institutes that are part of the academic experience of Texas A&M. These are found at the main campus in Bryan-College Station as well as at branch campuses in Galveston, Texas and Doha, Qatar.
The previous blog post focused on learning from our failures and gearing up for the upcoming semester. This post is specifically directed towards all the incoming graduate students who are excited, nervous and eager to make College Station their new natural habitat. In the next two weeks, flocks of students will land on the shores of Aggieland and they are frantically trying to manage setting up their apartment with a mattress, perhaps a bike for an easy commute, an American bank account and credit card etc. This post is intended to act as a mere guideline for the aforementioned things and isn@t necessarily the global optima of the process. It will also point out some deals and hacks which you ought to know once you come here. @

Having worked as a graduate teaching consultant and collaborator of multiple CTE programs, I personally benefitted a lot from this experience, and also heard many positive feedbacks from my peers, including both domestic and international graduate students. Whether you@re currently a teaching assistant or an instructor, or you will become one sometime in the future, you should all take advantage of our CTE resources.
Texas A@M football is an experience that you do not want to miss during your time in Aggieland. The tailgate starts early in the morning and is an exciting time to get together with friends and cheer on your Aggies.
