UTSA offers exceptional interdisciplinary training and research. Through the CRTS, a number of programs have been established to focus faculty and student interest in topics that draw upon multiple areas of expertise.

Faculty members in the CRTS programs are involved in cutting-edge research and are recipients of millions of dollars in competitive research funding each year. The range of faculty expertise among the programs makes it possible to match student and faculty interests closely.

Many of the programs within the CRTS support undergraduate and graduate students as research assistants, and all play an integral role in the academic programs of the university. These organizations attract scientific visitors to campus who engage in cooperative training with UTSA faculty and students, participate in seminar series, and supervise independent research projects.
