Student & Graduate Reviews

3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Very few financial aid opportunity available for graduate student enrolled in the master program. Especially for those working full time, and unable to have a full time enrollment. Parking is a nightmare during the day, and amenities on campus are quite expensive.
3.83 out of 5.0

4.67 out of 5.0

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

The Anthropology program at UTSA offers both an MA degree and PhD in Environmental Anthropology. The majority of the students are enrolled in the PhD track and typically come into the program with a MA from another university. The department offers various forms of funding such as Teaching Assistantships and departmental scholarships. The program has strengths in Primatology and Maya archaeology. The course work can be a bit challenging. The faculty are usually available to meet with graduate students and discuss issues. The graduate students are fairly active and offer the Anthropology Graduate Student Association. The group meets throughout the year and hosts monthly social events for graduate students. The department also offers professional development workshops and bi-weekly guest lectures.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors are great. They are all vested in the profession of counseling and promote professional identity. Two of the professors even started a new division of the American Counseling Association called Creativity in Counseling which publishes its own journal. On the downside, the current program is 48 hours which meets the Texas LPC requirements, but does not meet the requirements for many other states. However, the school is in the process of launching a new 60 hour program which does meet nation-wide requirements and will be accepted by the Veterans Affairs office.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2013

the initial process of getting into graduate school is not easy
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program leaves many avenues of development in the field of Biomedical Engineering. It allows students to dip their feet into the majority of specialties related to the field. The only issues would be that it does lack competition in certain areas of research. Furthermore, the program does not allow much insight of how the job market is for the program.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

Pro's - Affordable, friendly, quality. Extremely well-qualified faculty! Con's - Parking, lack of dance program.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The school accepts many non-traditional students which adds the diversity. The professors are all friendly, helpful, and very approachable. The con of the school is that the administration does not always think about what would be best for the student. For example they make class schedules or rotations for students that are not always in the best interest of the students.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2020

The program is fairly new so things are still being situated but there are a lot of opportunities for departmental funding and the faculty, staff, and students are all helpful and friendly.
