Texas A&M University is ranked No. 26 among public universities and has improved four spots to No. 66 overall among over 1,800 schools in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 college rankings.

U.S. News also ranks Texas A&M No. 13 in the country for best engineering programs and No. 24 for best business programs.

“Our improvement in the rankings is a testament to the fact that we are one of the most productive and influential research universities in the nation, as well as to our longstanding commitment to ensuring that our students graduate on time so that they can become leaders who excel in their careers and serve their communities, our nation and the world,” said Texas A&M President Michael K. Young.

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

MONEY magazine recently ranked Texas A&M as the top university in Texas and No. 11 overall in the country. In other MONEY rankings, Texas A&M is No. 5 in its best public schools list, which tops all Texas schools.

In other recent rankings, Texas A&M is ranked No. 12 overall and No. 4 among public universities in the United States by Washington Monthly magazine in its annual college rankings. Texas A&M is the only school in Texas ranked among the top 70 in the publication’s national rankings and is the highest ranked Southeastern Conference school.

Also, Texas A&M is ranked No. 2 among Southern schools in Washington Monthly’s “Best Bang For The Buck” category of how well a college helps non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.
