Texas A&M International University is an international university, poised at the gateway to Mexico and serving as the intellectual center of a vibrant bilingual and bicultural community (English/Spanish). Founded in 1970 as an upper-level center of the Texas A&M University System, TAMIU has since evolved into a four-year institution with the authority to offer doctoral programs. The university’s total enrollment is approximately 7,000, with over five percent being international students from 30 countries. Many students are of Mexican-American origin and form a unique bilingual border culture. Small classes, a low student-to-faculty ratio, and opportunities for active community involvement provide a personal and interactive experience.
Campus facilities include the student center, fine and performing arts building, the planetarium, the Lamar Bruni Vergara Science Center and many other buildings.
