Introduction

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Catalog Visitor,

The Texas A&M International University Catalog is a living guide to the University, its life and its mission.  With it, you can plan your journey, expand your horizons, refine your experience, and define your path.  It is a powerful tool that can truly help you construct your future.

Herein, you’ll find out more about our broad spectrum of undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs, our gifted faculty and dedicated staff -- and learn more about our campus’ facilities and resources.  From the comforting bells of our Trailblazer Tower to the soaring spaces of the Academic Innovation Center, you’ll find TAMIU is a place that will energize and inspire you.

Whether your challenge is found in a laboratory, on the playing field, in a group project, or in a study abroad experience, your journey begins here. The Catalog is where you’ll find your muse:  is it in the pages of literature?  Can it be seen through an electron microscope?  Is it gauged in a market analysis?  Is it shaped by an internship experience at a non-profit center?  Is it contemplated in your creation of a work of art?  Is it part of a “growing” experience in our Community Garden?  All this and more…your future, your passion, can be found here.  Simply put, the Catalog lights your path.

For over 50 years, this University has been the conduit to a rich and dynamic tradition of educational excellence for all students. As you set foot on this campus and make your degree progress forward, you’ll follow in the footsteps of alumni and expand upon a legacy of impact created by over 30,000+ graduates worldwide.

As the campus has grown, so have opportunities for you to expand your face-to-face or online classroom experience.  Choose from an impressive array of over 100 student clubs and organizations, internships, leadership activities, on-campus cultural and social events, and global study opportunities on virtually every continent.  If your path should momentarily detour, rest assured that our expanded student support services are ready to advise, to help you to always move forward.

This is a place of new life.  A place where you’ll  “Go Beyond” anything you might expect. A place where faculty and staff are engaged in helping you discover who you might be -- and to support you as you build that new identity. And as you evolve,  we’ll celebrate with you.  And yes, the future you construct here will give you much to celebrate. 

We are honored to help you design and build the future you envision. I look forward to your presence on campus or online.  I’m delighted to welcome you as you “Go Beyond” at TAMIU…and  propel yourself into a future of measurable impact and substance.

Sincerely,

Pablo Arenaz, Ph.D.
President
