More students are pursuing graduate degrees at UTSA this spring
(Feb. 15, 2017) -- New census numbers released by the UTSA Office of Institutional Research show there are more than 500 students enrolled in spring classes at UTSA than there were a year ago.
Additionally, the number of postbaccalaureate, master's and doctoral students is on the rise for spring. About 4,400 UTSA students are pursuing post-baccalaureate or graduate degrees this semester, compared to about 4,100 during spring 2016.
While many UTSA students opt to begin classes in the fall semester, spring has provided an entry point for almost 2,000 first-time college students and transfer students. That's nearly 600 more new students than one year ago.
The largest number of UTSA students are majoring in programs offered by the UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts. More than 5,800 COLFA students study in one of eleven academic areas, such as Art and Art History, Communications, Music, Political Science and Geography, or Sociology. The UTSA College of Business has the second largest enrollment with 5,503 students.
UTSA continues to attract a diverse group of students. About half of the student population identifies as Hispanic. An additional 1,000 students are international students who together represent 94 countries.
Bexar County remains the largest source of students for UTSA. In total, 12,994 enrolled students are residents of Bexar County. The second highest student population, nearly 2,000, comes from the Houston area. The number of Roadrunners from Travis County is also up this semester. Nearly 900 have moved from the Austin area to attend UTSA.
UTSA is an emerging Tier One research institution specializing in health, energy, security, sustainability, and human and social development. It is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
