UTSA grows with its community

May 5, 2022
Academic Strategic Communications

Much like the city of San Antonio, UTSA has experienced tremendous growth each decade since our founding. As we celebrate the Class of 2022, let’s honor all graduates from past and present who have helped UTSA grow to become San Antonio's university and a symbol of the city's upward trajectory.

Founded in 1969, UTSA began awarding master’s degrees in 1973-74, then bachelor’s degrees in 1975-76, and doctoral degrees beginning in 2002-03. The number of degrees the institution offers has expanded dramatically to meet the needs of the region’s residents and industries.
