Characteristics of Doctoral Programs

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board requires each doctoral program at a public university to provide data on 18 prescribed characteristics.  Though of basic informational use, the eighteen characteristics fall markedly short of portraying the complete nature of a doctoral program. Each doctoral program at Texas A&M University is unique. To find complete information, you should consult the program’s web site and contact the graduate adviser or graduate coordinator for your chosen program of interest. Reports are updated annually. The links below will take you to individual departments and colleges, as well as allow you to view a PDF of the report for that department.
