Interdisciplinary Studies (Education)

As a student, you’ve probably had a few lightbulb moments—those times when you finally understand something that you’ve spent an afternoon trying to learn. Occasionally, these breakthroughs were reached with the help of an amazing teacher. If you’re interested in kindling those moments with students, just like a teacher may have once done with you, then you may wish to consider a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.

UTSA’s Interdisciplinary Studies Program

At UTSA, you can earn a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with either a certification concentration (for  K-8 teachers) in Language Arts/Reading/Social Studies, Mathematics/Science, Generalist, Bilingual Generalist (offered through the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies), ESL or as a degree-only concentration (for social/government workers and those working with children in a nonteaching capacity). Concentrations are declared after you’ve been admitted and have met with your academic advisor.

Throughout this program, you’ll explore how different disciplines approach inquiry, examine multiple styles of learning, and incorporate cultural diversity into your teaching. The knowledge and skills you’ll pick up will enable you to become an effective educator and work with diverse learners across a global setting.

Career Resources

UTSA’s University Career Center offers several resources to help students identify and develop the global skills necessary to successfully pursue and achieve lifelong career goals.
