About

Forging a Brighter Future, Together

One is an important number at Texas State. There are thousands of us, but we’re united by one shared purpose: to make a positive impact in our world. Our 38,000 undergraduate and graduate students choose from more than 200 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs — from biology to music to business to geography and more. And each student finds the personalized support and opportunities they need to succeed beyond the classroom. One is never a lonely number at Texas State, because each one of us has thousands of Bobcats guiding and inspiring us on the way.
