Hands on the Prize
Students learn best through hands-on opportunities making experiential learning one of the most successful ways to prepare for future occupations. That’s why, together with our partners, UTSA has created hundreds of opportunities for students in classroom to career learning— hands-on learning outside the classroom through research, discovery, study abroad, internships, community engagement, and other creative and professional experiences. For students who desire to be community and business leaders, San Antonio serves as an expanded campus, providing learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom and opening doors for those who are diligent, focused and ready to grow.
