The University of Texas at Austin, a public research university in Austin, Texas, established on September 15, 1883, stands as the flagship institution of the University of Texas System. The University of Texas continues to strive for greatness. Inducted into the Association of American Universities in 1929, it ranks as the third university in the American south for this accolade.

The University of Texas at Austin has the nation’s 8th largest single campus enrollment. With over 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students and over 24,000 faculty and staff, this institution continues to grow.

A public ivy league school and a major center for academic research, research expenses costed over $615 million for the 2016-2017 school year. The university contains seven museums and seventeen libraries, including the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum and the Blanton Museum of Art.

Rather than limiting the students to on campus research facilities, UT also operates multiple auxiliary research facilities, such as the McDonald Observatory and the J. J. Pickle Research Campus.

Among the university faculty members, many earned a Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, the Primetime Emmy Award, the Wolf Prize, the Turing Award, and the National Medal of Science, and many other awards. As of October 2018, 11 Nobel Prize winners, 2 Turing Award winners, and 1 Fields medalist affiliate with the school as alumni, faculty members or researchers.

Unlike some schools that will accept a low GPA, to gain entry into University of Texas, applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.68 and maintain a mix of A’s and B’s, preferably more A’s than B’s. Candidates also must obtain a spot as one of the above average students in their graduating high school class.

Offering more than 170 fields of study, UT has many majors to choose from. Most known for engineering, social sciences, business, management, and marketing, UT offers other programs, too. With one of the best fine arts departments in the state, the program includes art classes, band classes and marching band, and theater arts.

Annually recognized as one of the best values in higher education by national publications, UT has one of the most affordable education programs. In state tuition costs $10,398 and out of state tuition costs $36,744, but the annual cost to attend for in state students and out of state students varies depending on the courses taken and financial aid needed.

University of Texas at Austin, a wonderful and affordable choice for education, continues to grow and strengthen the knowledge of humanity’s future.
