International Seminar Series
Although relatively few students can study abroad, all can attend classes on campus. The International Seminar Series is an innovative visiting faculty program. Students enroll in a one credit hour weekend course taught by an international faculty member on various topics. Visiting faculty teach in a concentrated format on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for 15 contact hours. Students submit assignments online and complete applied projects two weeks after the class concludes. Students earn one credit hour for each international seminar.
In addition to academic seminars, the visiting faculty members also present lectures to UTSA faculty, students and the external business community.
