Texas State University is located in San Marcos, TX between Austin and San Antonio. The university provides an outstanding place to study both the physical and cultural elements of geography in one of the nation’s fastest growing regions. The opportunities and challenges associated with this rapid population growth provide real-world examples for geography students interested in studying the cultural-human aspects of urban and regional land-use planning, as well as the environmental issues associated with growth and development. We have state-of-the-art facilities to provide students with geographic information technology skills including GIS (geographic information systems), GPS (global positioning system), and remote sensing.
We invite you to explore our website for details about our major concentrations, student organizations and activities and geography careers.
