Strength gained through knowledge. At Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi we believe the key to success is through gathering knowledge and skills, and learning how to apply these to real-world situations. The International Study Center (ISC) is a dedicated facility for ambitious international students. It is a place that welcomes, supports, and helps you to gain the skills, knowledge and foundation to succeed at A&M-Corpus Christi and become an active member of our community.We offer two pathways, International Year One (IY1), which prepares students for their undergraduate degree, and Pre-Master’s Program (PMP) which has been designed for graduate students. Upon completing your IY1 or PMP studies at the ISC, you’ll join the degree program of your choice, fully prepared for the challenges of an A&M-Corpus Christi education.
