FOUNDED IN 1899, Texas State University is the fifth-largest public university in Texas. Yet students in acclaimed academic programs—from biology to music to business to geography—enjoy close, personal relationships with faculty and staff.
Texas State undergraduate and graduate students choose from among 98 bachelor’s, 91 master’s, and 13 doctoral degree programs. Texas State continues to work to meet the needs of Texas, the nation, and the world with a range of offerings, including programs at the Ingram School of Engineering and the St. David’s School of Nursing at the Round Rock Campus.
Faculty and students engage in broad and diverse research, including cancer prevention, nanotechnology, water research, green energy, and archaeology. Undergraduates often have the opportunity to work one-on-one with professors on research projects across disciplines. Faculty members are known for establishing themselves as mentors to students, encouraging them to go further than they could have imagined.
Texas State students find their place among nearly 400 student organizations. Sixteen men’s and women’s teams compete at the NCAA Division I level. The Texas State Bobcats compete in the Sun Belt Conference in the Football Bowl subdivision.
Tree-covered hills make the campus one of the most beautiful in the state, and the pristine San Marcos River provides a scenic backdrop for research and recreational opportunities.
