The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has been recognized as one of America’s top universities for Hispanic student enrollment, according to Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine. 


UTSA was ranked No. 10 in the nation for the total number of Hispanics enrolled at a four-year school. According to the report, UTSA had nearly 14,000 Hispanic students out of a total student body of more than 28,000 enrolled in 2014. 


UTSA was also ranked the nation’s No. 8 institution for offering master’s degrees to Hispanic students during 2014. According to the report, 34 percent of the students who graduated from UTSA with a master’s degree were Hispanic.


Each year, Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education ranks America’s top colleges and universities for Hispanic students, using enrollment and degree completion data.


UTSA offers more than 160 degree programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels in the colleges of Architecture, Construction and Planning; Business; Education and Human Development; Engineering; Liberal and Fine Arts; Public Policy; and Sciences as well as the Honors College, University College and Graduate School. Its research specialties include health, security, energy, sustainability, and human and social development.


The university provides access to top-tier programs and facilities to large numbers of historically underserved students: More than 58 percent of UTSA’s students come from groups underrepresented in higher education and nearly half will be the first in their families to earn a college degree.
