Amy E. Jasperson , Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Department of Political Science & Geography

UT San Antonio

As a student, I found that teachers who adopted a positive approach to learning and who encouraged curiosity inspired success. My mission is to inspire my students to become engaged citizens who understand the relevance of political science and its connection to their lives. When students have the opportunity to apply theories to the world around them and to draw their own conclusions, they get excited about grappling with real, consequential ideas that matter.
