The core curriculum is the set of common courses required of all undergraduates at UTSA. While bachelor’s degree–seeking students select a major to develop in-depth expertise in a particular area, the common core represents the broad, foundational knowledge and skills that every UTSA graduate should have.
This website is intended to provide UTSA faculty with information and resources needed to (1) submit a proposal for a new course to become part of the core curriculum; and (2) to assess appropriately once a course has become a part of the core.
