Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program is goes into depth within the adult education realm. It is heavily theory based and blended learning is available as it is transitioning to an online program so that more graduate students can earn their masters degree. I got a mix of both and really enjoyed it. I do wish it went more into state policies instead of just theories in most classes over and over.

I thought I needed a trade afterwards. It was too theoretical.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

My program was very structured. It allowed me access to real career experiences and helped me to better myself. I am currently still enrolled in the program and feel competent with my progress and skills. The professors are very helpful and offer many opportunities for their students to succeed.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The School Psychology program at Texas State University was excellent in terms of career preparation and courses offered. However, the program was a bit unorganized and students do not receive much help, if any, with finding practicum and internship sites.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is not worth your time. The professors let political differences get in the way of student research. The professor I was advised by was not professional in any way. They on leave for 3 months the day after I got to Texas State. I had no idea they were leaving, and they pressured me to move ASAP across the country the day after I graduated undergrad. They called my stupid and a liar and told me that I had bad ideas. When I left their lab they told me I would be best to leave the sciences. They killed my love of biology. They were NEVER on campus. I only ever got 3 meetings with them in my time at Texas State. Ever time I talked to them they completely changed my research. As far as course work goes I felt that I did learn a lot in statistics. However, my second semester environmental hydrology became my living nightmare. It was taught by a professor who clearly was out of date. The work we did in class no longer has practical application. Many of the students in the department are mean spirited. They love to many fun of others and tear you down. Freeman has a good old boys club too, if you are not a dude the men won't talk to you. I was a GRA and thought I would have full funding, wrong. I had to take out loans. One of my advisors wanted me to stay for my PHD and offered to pay for it. I left after a year, without even an MS. I could not be happier to be away from that messed up school. And it wasn't that I wasn't capable. I had my proposal ready to be on file after my 1st semester and my grades were good. If you can go to literally any other school do so. I know I am not the only one who hated Texas State.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

This was a great masters program. It allowed me to get my teaching degree and masters at the same time. I had great professors that really seemed to care about my success.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Texas State University has been an incredible experience across the board. I have taken amazing classes with professors who were extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields. There are hundreds of organizations to join in a multitude of fields. Texas State has a great culture of community service and encourages students to get involved through multiple different events. You will meet people from all walks of life and creeds. It is truly the rising star of Texas!

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

Texas State is an excellent, diverse, supportive, and open-minded school. I have spent nearly 6 years of my life there getting a bachelors, and now a masters, degree. I am not looking forward to leaving. Every member of the faculty and staff I have met has been incredibly supportive and knowledgeable. It was well worth the move away from home (nearly 2000 miles, in fact). In addition, San Marcos is a wonderful city with events every night, and I love being so close to Austin and San Antonio.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

Texas State University's curriculum for their degree program for a Master's in Business & Administration (MBA) is a solid foundation for anyone looking to improve their career. The staff has the expertise and cares about their students. The Round Rock campus has more adult learners and therefore can be easier to work with sometimes.
