SINCE 1889, Texas A&M University-Commerce has upheld a tradition of excellence in education, empowering promising students like you to excel and succeed.

The fifth oldest university in the state, A&M-Commerce was founded by William Leonidas Mayo, whose creed of “ceaseless industry, fearless investigation, unfettered thought, and unselfish service to others” has inspired our educational mission for more than a century.

In keeping with our founder’s vision, we challenge you to seek the knowledge and possibilities that await you in the world of higher education and beyond. We celebrate your journey of discovery and intellectual growth as you become the person you want to be. Your academic options are numerous, with 80 undergraduate degree plans to choose from at A&M-Commerce, the second largest university within The Texas A&M University System.

The doors of opportunity open as you learn from award-winning educators and researchers, many of whom are involved in projects of national and international significance. Your education also is enhanced by learning alongside students from around Texas and beyond, with a diverse student body that makes a stroll across campus an international experience.

A&M-Commerce is large enough to unleash your mind while small enough to provide an intimate environment where students receive individual attention and benefit from hands-on learning. As such, it features the feeling of a private school at a public school cost.

Even after you graduate, you remain a member of the Lion family for life. As part of the A&M University System, you also will be among one of the largest and most active alumni networks around—an established legacy of excellence.

Come experience all that A&M-Commerce offers to inspire your best and enable your success.

“I come from a family that had barely traveled outside of Texas, let alone another country. When the opportunity was presented by my professor, Virgil Scott, to travel to China to meet the students we had been working with in our Cross-Cultural Design class, I was stunned. I quickly made arrangements, and as the day to depart grew closer, it all felt surreal. Arriving in Beijing, China, I felt small amongst the tall skyscrapers and bustle of a busy metropolitan city. I will never forget the people I met, the kindness of strangers, the culture of togetherness, or the ancient and beautiful landscape that was a backdrop to my adventure.”

At A&M-Commerce, we believe in the value of an international experience. Not only do we offer students an education that enables them to succeed in an increasingly global world, we urge our students to see the world for themselves. A variety of academic programs and study abroad opportunities are available to students, many of which take place in the summer months, such as British Studies, Spanish in Spain, and Business in China.

Sophomore Year Experience

The Sophomore Year Experience is a living and learning opportunity for sophomores to use the skills learned in their freshman year to implement change that will enhance their local and global community. Students work together as a team to research a global topic and do fundraising, then eventually travel out of the United States during the summer months. Don’t let an international experience pass you by!

Leadership Without Limits

Leadership Without Limits is a unique study abroad opportunity for undergraduate students starting in their third year to help develop their understanding of leadership in a global context. The program challenges students to examine their own perspectives by learning from each other and the cultures they visit.

“I have learned not to let fear get in my way. The professors have always given me the best advice to move forward or have taken the time to lend a hand or just listen to all of my questions and concerns. I feel empowered to know I am making a difference in my future. I can’t imagine going anywhere else. I am proud to be a Lion.”
“The best way to describe my experience at A&M-Commerce is simple: life-changing. This is where I’ve met most of the important mentors and friends in my life. It’s where I’ve grown to be a competent professional and a productive member of society. I’m fortunate to say that I didn’t just attain a couple of degrees and an education here. I am lucky that I got a life-changing experience.”
