School Details

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:
