THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT SAN ANTONIO (UTSA), a state research, Hispanic-Serving Institution, is the largest university in the San Antonio metropolitan region and third-largest academic institution in The University of Texas System. The university includes four campuses in the north and downtown areas of San Antonio that span 874 acres in total.
An urban-serving university, UTSA trains tomorrow’s leaders to tackle society’s grand challenges. Some 99 percent of UTSA’s full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members hold doctorates or equivalent terminal degrees.
UTSA offers 165 degree programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels in business; education and human development; engineering and integrated design; health, community, and policy; liberal and fine arts; and sciences, as well as the honors college, university college, and graduate school. UTSA’s aspiration to become a nationally recognized research university is supported by research specialties including advanced materials and manufacturing; cloud, cyber, computing, analytics, and data sciences; integrated biomedicine; social and educational policy and innovation; and sustainable communities and critical infrastructure.
UTSA’s new School of Data Science and National Security Collaboration Center building, set to open in the summer of 2022, will serve as an anchor to San Antonio’s high-tech corridor and a catalyst for community investment. This project advances the university’s vision to earn national recognition as a research-intensive institution and bolsters San Antonio’s national standing as Cyber City USA.
