Do you have an undergraduate (bachelors) degree, but find yourself needing more? Would your career get a boost by your having a graduate degree from a respected, accredited university? Is quitting your job and returning to campus for two years simply not an option?
Texas A&M University may have the answer for you. We offer graduate-level degree and certificate programs in formats accessible beyond the traditional campus. Texas A&M currently offers several graduate degrees via either online, videoconference, or remote classrooms. We offer only a few undergraduate agricultural courses. They can be found here. Approved Distance Education degrees and certificates at Texas A&M University comply with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's Principles of Good Practice for Academic Degree Certificate Programs and Credit Courses Offered Electronically (PDF).
This site has been prepared to assist Texas A&M faculty, staff and administration interested in learning about the development of courses and programs offered for delivery by distance with technology-mediated instruction.
To help you understand how distance education operates at Texas A&M, we have developed three main sections and an appendix, which contains example program proposals:
- Support Structures for Distance Learning at Texas A&M
- Developing Distance Learning Courses and Programs
- Distance Learning Regulations

After extensive discussions on campus among the Provost,
vice presidents, and academic deans, it was decided that the university will
restructure distance education services to be located in colleges providing
distance education courses. As a result
of this restructuring, the Office of Distance Education (ODE) will be closed on
August 31, 2010. A campus-wide
announcement of this decision can be found at the following URL: http://rgs.tamu.edu/research-administration/announcement-june-8-2010.
