Areas of Study
Space. Stars. The ocean. Microbes. Are you in love with learning about science and have a passion for soaking up all it has to offer? Do you enjoy explaining it to your friends and family? If this is you, then you may want to put that broad scientific mind of yours to good use by earning a degree in Multidisciplinary Science.
UTSA’s Multidisciplinary Science Program
The B.S. in Multidisciplinary Science (MDS) will provide you with a broad range of learning that is spread across the sciences. You’ll take courses in bioscience, genetics, chemistry, oceanography and more. The MDS degree, coupled with a concentration in a single science field, is recommended for future scientists interested in an extensive interdisciplinary approach in science. This program is designed specifically for you if you’re interested in becoming a future scientist or secondary science teacher.
If you’re seeking a teacher certification, you should contact the COEHD Advising and Certification Center as early as possible, no later than your fourth semester, for information about certificate requirements and admission procedures. Undergraduates seeking elementary teacher certification must complete the interdisciplinary studies degree.
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
