Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

The programs faculty and location make it a top program in Texas! The school's website is not top norch and registering for classes was a bit of figuring it out on my own. If i needed any help there were plenty of people to ask with fast replies.

Degree: Early Childhood Education

I live in San Antonio, Texas and I drive twice a week to Texas State University because it has a great education graduate program. I had en excellent experience so far with the faculty members that are always there when I had questions. Also my counselors are very helpful. Overall the program has great resources, networking, faculty and peers that help my growth as graduate student.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Texas State is a great place to go to school! I received my Bachelor's degree from State, and I am so glad to return to receive my MBA! Although I work full time, graduate school can bear a heavy load on its own. It would be such a relief to have some help, and it would help eliminate some of the stress that grad school creates on its own!

Therapeutic Recreation masters program at Texas State is insightful and rewarding. Professors help us understand the meaning of recreation and how to apply it in a therapeutic fashion. Classmates are cohesive and grow closer as the semesters pass on. Professors are well connected, very friendly and very helpful. Surrounding areas make it easy to relax by floating river w/ classmates as well as other fun activities. The program is relatively new, somewhat small but quickly growing. Glad I am attending Texas State for this program.

Degree: Business

So far I have not experienced any cons with the program. Pros have been the accessibility and affordability of the program, as well as the warmth I have felt from advisers and other staff.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

Texas State Communication Disorders program is a well supported Speech-Language Pathology Masters program. We complete most coursework during the first year while completing on campus clinical experience supervised. During the second year we complete externships at settings varying from schools to hospitals to skilled nursing facilities. The program is extensive. Unlike other programs, it is almost impossible to have a job outside the university. Time commitments vary week to week but there are deadlines, often being given only 24 hours to to complete clinic work. This can cause alot of stress, but does mirror what the work environment for our profession will be like. Overall it is a wonderful program that prepares students well for the real world.

Degree: Higher Education

I like the different teaching styles amongst the professors in my program.The professors are very knowledgeable and are willing to teach in multiple ways. My grad program is a big time commitment. That is by far the worst part.

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is definitely on the forefront of important issues concerning agricultural and sustainable practices that are applicable both nationwide and globally. Central Texas is not always considered as forerunners in the fight for sustainable land practices, water and soil conservation, and profitable green farming practices, and I think this program is invaluable in its approach to these matters. As a new program, i hope to see it continue to reach in its efforts to place both the university and Central Texas as big names among sustainable agricultural entities. I think student research is the biggest aspect that can bring about change. My particular mentor is adamant about in-depth academic research, but I hope the program as a whole becomes a research-based program and requires students to become scientists and educators as part of their studies.
