A major is a specific field of study in which a student possesses a personal interest. Students may select a major at any time after being admitted to Texas State. Once a major is selected, students complete a prescribed number of courses.
Students may also choose to complete a minor in addition to their major field of study. Minors, usually consisting of 18 to 24 credits, are offered in Aerospace Studies, Agriculture, Criminal Justice, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Military Science. Some majors require a minor while other majors leave the minor to the discretion of the students.
