Texas A&M University is now ranked No. 24 overall among public universities, improving from No. 25 last year in the 2019 U.S. News and World Report Best College Rankings.

Texas A&M is ranked No. 66 overall this year, advancing from 69th in 2018 among all public and private universities in the U.S. News rankings.

Texas A&M President Michael K. Young said the report is evidence that the outstanding work by students and faculty remains consistent while always striving to improve.

“These competitive rankings are a mark of excellence that we should celebrate and expect from our university. Preparing our graduate and undergraduate students for roles in leadership and service remain top priorities. We know we’re succeeding in those areas because our graduates are in high demand in the job market, which also is a great testament to our outstanding faculty and staff.”

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 ranked No. 22 among public universities in the latest Wall St. Journal/Times Higher Education College 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.
