More than 57 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. http://www.utsa.edu/about/
With 28,379 students enrolled in 124 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, UTSA is the second-largest component in The University of Texas System and has been one of the state’s fastest-growing public universities for much of the last decade. UTSA offers 62 bachelor’s, 43 master’s and 19 doctoral degree programs. With eight new doctoral programs and seven more master’s programs in the planning stages, UTSA is rapidly moving toward classification as a doctoral/research intensive institution.

Region Description
In describing San Antonio, one of our former post-doc’s described it as: "Home of the River walk, The Alamo and the NBA Champion Spurs, San Antonio is truly a big city that feels like a small town. The culture rich city offers renowned art museums, theatre and fine dining. For those who love the outdoors, San Antonio is perched on the edge of Texas Hill Country which offers hiking, biking and river tubing. The state capitol of Austin is an easy two hours away offering incomparable access to the famous Texas music scene. Feel the heat in the summer but enjoy a mild climate and the palm trees the rest of the year."
