When and where courses are offered

San Marcos Campus

Texas State University offers master's degree programs in elementary education-talent development and  in secondary education-talent development.  To accommodate the work schedules of teachers and other education professionals, graduate courses in education primarily are offered in the evenings during the Fall and Spring semesters.  Some courses also are available in online or hybrid (blended) formats.  In the summer, courses are primarily offered during the day, but summer courses are not required.

Talent development graduate students are able to take classes at the beautiful main campus in San Marcos.  In addition, some courses may be taken at the Round Rock campus, providing helpful flexibility for students' schedules. 

The practicum course is a capstone, field-based experience in an educational setting.  If you are presently employed in an educational setting, you may complete the talent development practicum within your own classroom or other educational context.  If you are not presently employed in a school or non-traditional educational setting, an appropriate field-based site will be arranged.  You will be able to take other courses during the same semester as your practicum.
