Texas A&M University-San Antonio was created to address an educational need in South San Antonio. The Texas Legislature asked The Texas A&M University System to establish a center that would offer junior- and senior-level courses in South San Antonio, an area that has been historically underserved in terms of higher education. The university, then known as Texas A&M University-Kingsville System Center-San Antonio, was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in January 2000. Texas A&M University-San Antonio faculty and staff prepare and empower students through innovative and challenging academic and co-curricular programs that contribute to and enrich the economic and social development of the community and region. A solid foundation for success is established through dynamic teaching, scholarship, research, and public service that inspire graduates to lifelong learning and responsible global citizenship.
Texas State's 32,572 students choose from 97 bachelors, 89 masters and nine doctoral degree programs offered by the colleges: Applied Arts, McCoy College of Business Administration, Education, Fine Arts and Communication, Health Professions, Liberal Arts, Science, University College and the Graduate College. Texas State students come from around the globe, and our student body is diverse. Thirty-five percent of Texas State students are ethnic minorities. Hispanic Outlook ranks Texas State 13th in the nation for the number of bachelor's degrees awarded to Hispanic students. Over the years, the Legislature broadened the institution's scope and changed its name in 2003 to Texas State University-San Marcos. Each name reflects the university's growth from a small teacher preparation institution to a major, multipurpose university. Texas State's original mission was to prepare Texas public school teachers. It became renowned for carrying out this mission, but today it does far more.
