Multidisciplinary Studies Degree Program (B.A./B.S.)
About the Program
The B.S. degree in Multidisciplinary Studies allows students to develop a degree program around academic themes or niche areas that fall outside traditional disciplinary boundaries and helps support student achievement of personal academic and career goals. This degree combines courses from three different disciplines, one of which must be housed in the College of Sciences or the College of Engineering, into a coherent course of study to meet career and educational goals.
UTSA’s Artificial Intelligence degree allows students to study multiple fields such as computer science, mathematics, statistics, electrical and computer engineering, and information systems. Artificial Intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by computer systems which includes machine learning, reasoning, and self-correction. Companies like Apple, Amazon, Tesla, Netflix, Google, and others use artificial intelligence for speech recognition, voice-powered personal assistants, self-driving vehicles, and robotics.
UTSA’s Cyber Intelligence degree allows students to study multiple fields such as statistics, information systems, management science, and political science. Cyber Intelligence tracks, analyzes, and counters digital security threats using a mix of physical and digital intelligence. This program focuses on gaining a foundation in finance and political science with data science knowledge to understand cyber threats.
UTSA's Data Science degree allows students to study multiple fields such as computer science, statistics, electrical engineering, information systems, and management science. Data science is a blend of data interference, algorithmic development, and technology to solve analytically complex problems. Companies like Netflix, Google, Amazon, and others use data science to make decisions and determine what drives consumer interest.
UTSA's Geoinformatics degree allows students to study multiple fields such as computer science, statistics, data science, cloud computing, earth science, geographic information systems, remote sensing, and spatial analysis. Geoinformatics is a blend of data interference, algorithmic development, and geospatial technology to solve spatial related earth science, climate science, and environmental science problems. Companies like Google, Amazon, and many business and governmental agencies use geoinformatics to make decisions for societal benefits and for scientific research and exploration.
UTSA’s Neuroscience degree allows students to study multiple fields such as biology, psychology, and statistics. Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system through brain-focused science. This program focuses on discovering the neural bases of experience, behavior and disease.
UTSA provides a pathway for students who are interested in a Nursing degree through a 2+2 program with UT Heath San Antonio. Students who qualify and get accepted into this program would eventually receive a B.A. degree in Multidisciplinary Studies from UTSA and a B.S. degree in Nursing from UT Heath San Antonio.
