Degree: Music Therapy/Therapist
Graduation Year: 2008

My education at Sam Houston State University gave me a competitive edge in the field of music therapy. Agencies and clients with whom I work often praise both my clinical and musical skills. I felt extremely prepared for the professional world upon graduation.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Sam Houston State University has two campuses. One campus is located in Huntsville, TX and the other is in the Woodlands, Texas. This university is great for students who want have the university experience, but also have smaller class sizes where the professor will know your name. The nursing program is fairly new, however the NCLEX pass rates are great for those who are interested in pursuing a career in nursing.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Sam Houston State University RN to BSN transition program was great. I enjoyed the small cohort of classes and the ability to have face to face and only interaction. I completed my RN to BSN in 3 semesters. This program has 16 week courses which may be a potential con for some. This program is relatively new and does not have a Masters in Nursing track at this time.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2016

Sam Houston State University (Sam) is a university known for it's location; it has the charm of being in a small town, while being close to Houston. The Campus itself is filled with friendly students eager to learn. The overall curriculum in the English department is intimate with the average class size from 20-30 students. I personally loved the sense of community and campus engagement. Sam hosts the National Book Awards, and many renown authors and poets. The faculty has not only influenced me to stay involved with my community, but they have impacted my writing and research. Many of the professors have students travel from outside of Texas to be in their classrooms! Overall, while the faculty are active in their fields, they have a passion for aiding students pursue their own field. It's hard to be discouraged when your professors want to see you succeed. After all, "The Measure of Life Is It's Service."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

One of the very best school in the nation for Criminal justice program! Earned my BS and MA in the school with WORLD CLASS scholars! The school is no joke and will hold your feet to the fire, but you will be good as gold! I was immediately admitted to the PhD program after my graduation and published in peer-reviewed journal. Very good class size and attention from instructors. The campus is awesome and beautiful. To be fair, the only complaint is too far from civilization and it takes an hour and a half of a drive to the major city (Houston). By the way, one of the best return-on-investment school you can find as annual tuition is only 60% of other comparable schools. Super military friendly!

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2014

Sam Houston State University has an exceptional staff. All of my interactions with administrators and professors were personalized, and I was made to feel like the staff had my best interest in mind. I lived out of the area, and my degree plan was not offered strictly online, so the professors worked with me to create new online courses to meet my degree requirements.

Degree: Geology/Earth Science, General
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a very nice small state college. Most of the departments are small and allow students to really get to know their teachers. Since the teachers know most of their students, they care more about how they are doing. You are not just a nameless face among the masses.

Degree: Business/Commerce, General
Graduation Year: 2010

The class sizes are fantastic. What this means is that the student to teacher is relatively small. This allowed the professor to better get to know each student. The professor quality is superb. The assignments allowed students to better understand what they were learning it was not a "worksheet/ chapter/lecture" learning environment. The scheduling of the classes also allowed me to create a schedule that was beneficial for me as well as my daily routines. This university is located in a small college town.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

While the BBA program at SHSU is educational, much of the MBA program is a repeat and allows few concentrations outside of the standard fields. If you're looking to enhance your knowledge and/or get a Concentration in Economics, forget about this university. If you paid attention in your undergraduate courses and simply want an MBA, then this may be what you want.
