Located in Kingsville, Texas, Texas A&M University–Kingsville is one of the campuses comprised by the Texas A&M University System. The university has programs in engineering, agriculture, wildlife, music, and the sciences and developed the nation's first doctoral degree in bilingual education.
Texas A&M University–Kingsville is the oldest continuously operating public institution of higher learning in South Texas. The school was chartered as the South Texas Normal School in 1917; however, the opening of the school was delayed due to World War I. Founded in 1925 as South Texas State Teachers College, the university's name changed in 1929 to Texas College of Arts and Industries signaled the broadening of its mission. A 1967 name change to Texas A&I University marked another transition. The university became a member of the Texas A&M University System in 1989 and changed its name to Texas A&M University–Kingsville in 1993.
