Here, 38,000+ undergraduates and more than 9,000 graduate students have access to world-class research programs and award-winning faculty. TAMU has two branch campuses, one in Galveston, Texas, and one in the Middle Eastern country of Qatar. This research-intensive flagship university has 10 colleges and many degree programs are ranked among the top 10 in the country.
