SAN MARCOS - Three new programs are in the process of being added to the curriculum at Texas State. Beginning in fall 2015, the university will offer a Master of Science degree with a major in Dementia and Aging Studies.

Texas State will be the first university in the nation to offer a graduate-level educational program focused on person-centered dementia care in the nation.

The program will be comprised entirely of online courses, to accommodate part-time students. According to enrollment projections, part-time students are estimated to make up 40 percent of the total program enrollment.

The second program is a Bachelor of Science major in Interdisciplinary Science. It includes a Composite Science Teacher Certification for grades seven through 12. Students who graduate from the program will be prepared to take the TExES certification exam for the composite science teaching certification.

Texas State has also developed a Graduate Minor in Diversity Studies that is expected to begin in fall 2014.
