Requena previousy taught at the University of Montana, Pennsylvannia State University, and Universidad Nacional de Córdoba.  At UTSA he will be teaching Spanish and linguistics courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as continuing his research agenda.

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at UTSA offers a minor in linguistics and a graduate certificate in linguistics.
