Student-focused LearningCelebrated scholars, teachers and authors from around the globe fill UT’s distinguished faculty (90 percent have a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field). Whether they teach primarily graduate courses or travel abroad to present their research, UT professors always keep their students at the center of their work and aim to educate the whole person. They also emphasize experiential education — actively engaging students in study abroad, internships, service learning, and their own research.
