Challenge Your Ideas About Learning

When you enroll at Angelo State University, your learning environment will be as varied as all of the classes you take. Many of our academic programs offer real-world settings so that you have the opportunity to learn while doing.

Whether you are in our nursing program using our high-tech mannequins in the simulation lab, in our computer science program designing your own games or in the food animal science and marketing program learning about meat and food processing at the ASU Ranch, you’ll have an unmatched learning experience second to none.

Sure, we have plenty of classes that use a traditional lecture format, but there’s nothing traditional about them. Ninety percent of our classrooms have multimedia capabilities that allow students to interact with lectures and classroom curriculum. So go ahead – browse our academic programs and find one that inspires you!

And, with its own coffee shop, you won’t even have to leave when you get hungry!

Undergraduate Research

When you study at Angelo State University, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor to pursue advanced work in your major or field of interest. Research projects vary, but may include:

  • Scientific laboratory experiments
  • Historical endeavors involving the university archives
  • Fieldwork that leads to a better understanding of a social or environmental situation
  • Artistic creation

Once you decide on a project, you’ll work one-on-one with your faculty mentor to produce quality research results that can lead to conference presentations or exhibitions, as well as publication. Undergraduate research not only allows you to apply classroom concepts in a hands-on setting, but it can also give you a competitive edge on your résumé or applications for graduate, law or medical school.
