In 1969, a bill was signed creating The University of Texas at Dallas, fulfilling a mandate to create educational opportunities in science and technology in North Texas. By law, UT Dallas offered only graduate degrees until 1975, when the addition of juniors and seniors prompted steady growth in enrollment. During that period, the university added centers and programs for brain science, aviation, management, and engineering. During the 2000s, the university expanded its teaching mission, improved its external research funding and enhanced its areas of focused excellence.
Today UT Dallas awards bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, as well as certificates, from the following schools:
School of Arts and Humanities
School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication
School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences
Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges
