Dean's welcome

Dr. Lackey

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Graduate School at The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College. Our graduate programs are designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead a productive and proactive life as a leader in your field. Our graduate tuition and fees are low, even by Texas standards, and our graduate class sizes are small, creating an intimate setting that promotes a genuine rapport among faculty, students and peers, thereby promoting academic excellence.

Our campus is conveniently located in South Texas, 30-minutes to the white, sandy beaches of South Padre Island and just a couple of blocks from the international border with Mexico. This unique location contributes to the internationalization of the curriculum for many of our graduate programs and gives our students unique opportunities for research and scholarship. It is also a fun place to live!

The staff in the Office of Graduate Studies is happy to serve you, and wishes you the best in your pursuit of your graduate education. We hope that our masters and doctoral programs will provide you with a learning experience which will enhance your career and help you to achieve your life goals.

Charles Lackey, Ph.D.
