Why Graduate Studies at Texas State University?

Students in The Graduate College participate in education and research with relevance to the world beyond the university. Nationally recognized faculty lead the way with applied, interdisciplinary scholarship. We have more than 100 graduate degree programs, which include flexible formats for both full-time and part-time students. The university's main campus is located in San Marcos, between Austin and San Antonio, providing a small-town feel with urban opportunities. North of Austin is the Round Rock Campus, adding more flexibility with the same rigorous academics.
