Welcome to the Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching! We approach the preparation of educators from an interdisciplinary and social justice perspective through a variety of programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels to support students in reaching their professional goals.

We have a talented faculty who engages in research to inform their practice and support our students in doing the same. We participate in partnerships that are responsive to local needs and build on community assets to develop local capacity.

Education is a dynamic field that requires professionals who can engage deeply in their particular area of expertise but can also collaborate with a diverse range of individuals to support students, schools, and communities in reaching their goals. We hope you choose UTSA to join us in this endeavor. Together we can make an educational difference.

I look forward to hearing from you!
