About The University of Texas at Tyler

Founded in 1971, UT Tyler is one of the fastest-growing universities in the renowned University of Texas System, which includes nine universities and six health institutions located throughout the state. The university averages a highly favorable 16:1 student-to-professor ratio, offering a clear advantage over larger campuses with less accessibility and more rigid culture. Student-centric learning and cultural diversity are central to the UT Tyler experience, with students from 35 states and 45 countries enjoying private university quality at public university prices. State-of-the-art facilities and generously supported research spending provide access to such programs as the Center for Organic Semiconductor Modeling and Simulation (COSMOS), a collaborative research program between The University of Texas at Tyler and The University of Texas at Dallas to develop a scientific approach for describing organic electronics.

With more than 80 bachelor's and master's degrees offered through the university's five colleges, UT Tyler offers a wealth of learning opportunities and dynamic programs, including an impressive selection of online master's programs and Ph.D. degrees in nursing and human resource development. Our faculty is highly respected and personally dedicated to your education and career success. We believe that rigorous learning and nurturing support engenders student confidence, to connect you with opportunities and experiences well beyond the classroom.
