West Texas A&M University, a member of The Texas A&M University System, is dedicated to providing a high quality baccalaureate and graduate education using traditional delivery and distance learning where appropriate. West Texas A&M University is committed to serving as the principal academic, cultural, technical, service and research center of the multi-state region surrounding Canyon and Amarillo through the collective and individual efforts of the faculty, staff and students. West Texas A&M University's mission is to educate students to be informed, responsible, creative and articulate decision makers who will exercise good citizenship, appreciate diversity and be professionally competitive.

West Texas A&M University's major areas of emphasis include but are not limited to teacher preparation, business, agriculture, fine arts, health care and sciences. All programs shall be built upon a solid foundation of required courses in communication, history and political science, and studies which develop strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills as well as an understanding of cultural diversity and an appreciation for the fine arts and humanities.

West Texas A&M University lies in the northeast corner of the town of Canyon, Texas, approximately fifteen miles south of Amarillo. Here, you’ll discover small-town America complete with hospitable people, historic homes and a shop-lined town square.

Despite the vast, open plains that cover the region, trees and foliage are in abundance here at West Texas A&M. Many students and community members find the 176-acre campus the perfect place to take a stroll, have a leisurely picnic or walk the family dog. Our newly completed pedestrian mall with marble sculpture and fountain makes the view even more scenic.
