The Student Experience

Urban Studies students have the opportunity to engage in student research in upper- division classes, independent studies, and the required major seminar. They are also strongly encouraged to undertake internships available throughout San Antonio in its museums, city departments, and national historic landmarks, among many other opportunities.

Why San Antonio?

Prospective students will find San Antonio rich in cultural history. From the monuments of Texas and Mexico's shared past to the skyscrapers and arenas of contemporary commerce, San Antonio is a city built for exploration, analysis and study.
