Our fundamental purpose rests in the study of social, cultural, and linguistic resources in diverse contexts at the local, regional, national, and international levels. The Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies is an interdisciplinary faculty with a shared commitment to responding to the needs of Latinos and other populations who do not have equity of access to higher education. Since the founding of UTSA, the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies has provided leadership and expertise in addressing issues related to language, culture, policy and educational practices. We promote our purpose through strong faculty and student research as well as preparation of educators and other professionals to work with bilingual populations in human and social services. In order to fulfill our mission, we collaborate with researchers, educators, policy makers, and community organizations to promote social change through our expertise in Bilingual and Second Language Education, and Mexican American and Bicultural Studies.

Our staff takes great pride in helping students to navigate through the complexities of a large university — we encourage you to email us or to call (210) 458 4426 with your questions. We look forward to hearing from you, and will do our utmost to put you into direct contact with the person who can best assist you.
