Message from the Chair


We honor what you know. 


This is the main tenet of our faculty and staff because many of us grew up in the same communities and families as our students. Our life and work experiences often overlap with those who sit in our classrooms, which make many students feel respected and at home in BBL (our department’s nickname).


As you make your journey through UTSA, rest assured that BBL faculty will couple your knowledge with their expertise and training—which spans a range of disciplines, such as education, anthropology, language, cultural studies, literacy, sociology, and literature. We will also encourage you to continually engage with your peers as they, too, offer tremendous resources in your intellectual and social development.


Our staff takes great pride in helping students navigate through the complexities of a large university—we encourage you to email or call us (please see our side menu for contact information). We look forward to hearing from you soon, Roadrunners.


Come be a part of the BBL Familia!
