Why UT Austin?
Any good university educates its students. But a great university—a university with monumental impact and a tradition of intellectual leadership—does more. It transforms lives on a grand scale.
Or, as we like to say, what starts here changes the world.
With a faculty of national and international reputation, The University of Texas is one of the world's leading research universities, offering more than 200 dedicated research unit and centers, including the Briscoe Center for American History, the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies and the Harry Ransom Center. The university's library system is the nation's fifth largest academic library, containing over eight million volumes, including special collections ranging from architecture to public affairs to fine arts.
Situated in the heart of the culturally robust capitol of Texas, our graduate students find themselves at home in the university community. From the department's rich season, offerings at Texas Performing Arts to the Off Center - home of the nationally-acclaimed Rude Mechs, your calendar will be overflowing all year. Come visit the Forty Acres and see if we are the right fit for you.
