Texas A&M Ranked Among Best Colleges By Wall St. Journal
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.”
