The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development for Texas, the nation and the world.
The University of Texas at San Antonio serves the San Antonio metropolitan area and the broader region of South Texas through programs and services offered from its three campuses: Main Campus, Downtown Campus and UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures. With over 30,000 students enrolled in 135 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, UTSA has been one of the state's fastest-growing public universities for much of the last decade. UTSA offers 62 bachelor’s, 49 master’s and 24 doctoral degree programs. With additional doctoral programs approved and others awaiting final approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and with in research and sponsored programs expenditures totaling $79 million in for FY 2011, UTSA has now been classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a Research University – High Research Activity. The university's three campuses provide access and opportunity for large numbers of historically underserved students. More than 61 percent of UTSA's students come from groups underrepresented in higher education. Many students are the first in their families to attend a college or university. The University of Texas at San Antonio is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate, master’s, and doctorate degrees.
Founded by the Texas Legislature in 1969, UTSA now offers access and opportunity for over 30,000 students. UTSA has come a long way in just 40 years.
UTSA has a goal to become a doctoral/research extensive institution (at least 50 doctoral degrees a year in at least 15 disciplines) by 2015. As the premier doctoral/research university of South Texas and as a Hispanic-serving institution, UTSA will continue to provide educational opportunities for the underrepresented population of the region at the highest level of excellence.
