Tarleton State University, offering its own brand of personal attention, a unique history, and an exciting future, is celebrating its 100th anniversary as part of the Texas A&M University System.

Founded as John Tarleton College in 1899, today’s university offers cutting-edge academic facilities and world-class faculty with extensive real-world experience.

With its main campus in Stephenville, Tarleton offers centers in Fort Worth, Waco, Midlothian and a global campus for state-of-the-art online programs. Extending the reach of educational value, Tarleton has boosted its selection of online graduate and undergraduate programs through classes in these centers.

Students may select areas of study from five colleges - Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Health Sciences and Human Services, Liberal and Fine Arts and Science and Technology.

More than 60 bachelor’s programs and 30 graduate degrees, featuring doctoral studies in educational leadership, have led more than 13,000 students from 45 states and more than 20 foreign countries to make Tarleton State their collective choice for a college education.

Tarleton’s blueprints for a brighter-than-ever future include a new applied sciences building with engineering laboratory space on campus in Stephenville, a new academic building on the university’s planned 80-acre Fort Worth campus near Chisolm Trail Parkway, and $24 million in upgrades and improvements to the institution’s venerable Memorial Stadium.
