It is committed to being a university of opportunity for all students and believes it has a responsibility to drive regional innovation and job creation for all graduates.About Tarleton State UniversityTarleton’s innovative and transformative approach provides more than knowledge. Through real-world experiences and effective teaching, research, scholarship and service, students gain the know-how for promising careers, no matter their field of study.Tarleton has evolved into the near-perfect model of size, academic scope and affordability. Founded in 1899 and part of The Texas A&M University System since 1917, it combines the resources of a major public institution — more than 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, cutting-edge academic facilities, faculty experts — with its own brand of personal attention, history and community to be a first-choice destination for students across North Texas and beyond.Students can choose to study in one of seven colleges — Agricultural and Environmental, Business Administration, Educ...ation, Graduate Studies, Health Sciences and Human Services, Liberal and Fine Arts, and Science and Technology.The primary campus is in Stephenville, which consistently ranks as one of the best small towns in America. Additional locations are in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian and Bryan, complemented by a fully online Global Campus.Students come to Tarleton from around the world, representing some 30 countries and nearly every state in the U.S., and leave as moral, ethical thinkers with civility and integrity who contribute meaningfully to a global society.Tarleton State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Veterans/Disability Employer. Students may select areas of study from six colleges: Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Graduate Studies, Health Sciences and Human Services, Liberal and Fine Arts, and Science and Technology.More than 60 bachelor's programs and 30 graduate degrees, featuring doctoral studies in educational leadership, have led more than 13,000 students from 45 states and more than 20 foreign countries to make Tarleton State their collective choice for a college education.Tarleton's research centers are daily searching for solutions to global problems. For instance, the Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research conducts analyses to address environmental issues facing the state and nation, while the Southwest Regional Dairy Center, using an almost $1 million grant, is working on ways to turn animal waste into a viable energy source.Tarleton's blueprints for a brighter-than-ever future include a new applied sciences building with engineering laboratory space on campus in Stephenville, a new academic building on the university's planned 80-acre Fort Worth campus near Chisolm Trail Parkway, and $24 million in upgrades and improvements to the institution's venerable Memorial Stadium.Tarleton State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Veterans/Disability Employer.
