Texas A&M University is ranked No. 22 among public universities and No. 94 overall among 968 colleges in the 2019 Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings.

The rankings place Texas A&M in the top 10 percent in the overall ranking among all colleges and universities surveyed.

The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education rankings use multiple grading criteria based on four broad categories: resources, engagement, outcomes and environment.

Included in those categories are numerous other metrics, including reputation; costs; graduation rates; student loans and default rates; earning power after graduation; amount of faculty research; number of accredited programs; student and faculty/staff diversity; number of international students; student-faculty ratio; and other criteria.

“I am happy to see this recognition of efforts by our faculty, staff and students in critical areas such as resources, engagement and outcomes,” Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young said. “We create thriving learning environments, engage our students, and provide them all they need to succeed before and after graduation.”

Texas A&M has fared well in similar recent rankings.

  • Texas A&M is ranked No. 1 among all Texas colleges in Money magazine’s recent “best college values” rankings.
  • Texas A&M is also the only public college in Texas to make the Fiske Guide to Colleges in its “best buy” rankings.
  • In addition, Washington Monthly recently ranked Texas A&M No. 11 – and the only Texas college listed – in its best universities in the nation rankings.
