Colleges and Universities (Subscribe)
After graduation, it's no coincidence that some of the most prestigious institutions of higher education in the United States just happen to be Texas colleges and universities. For example, Texas A&M University is renowned throughout the country as having one of the best programs for those who aspire to go into the field of veterinary medicine as well as being at the top of the list for agricultural and farm science. Meanwhile, the University of Texas at Austin has a medical and nursing program that is hard to beat.
There's no shortage of excellent private schools in Texas, either. Rice University is one of the most prestigious nondenominational private institutions in the country, with a wide range of successful biomechanical research programs who owe their success in part to Rice's location near the Houston Space Center. St. Mary's University has the distinction of being one of the top Texas universities in the country, as well that of being the oldest in the state.
With so many wonderful programs and choices to fit every academic lifestyle, it's not hard to see why students come from all over the country to seek an education in one of the many Texas colleges. Exemplary academic, sports, and fine arts programs combined with some of the finest and most recognized educators make Texas universities a great choice for anyone living in Texas as well as those who are planning a move.
