Student & Graduate Reviews (13)
The Department of Psychology welcomes you. UTEP is proud of the accomplishments of their faculty, students, and graduates. They are a research oriented department where their priority is the discovery of new knowledge and understandings of the individual and their behavior. The application of that knowledge is the better help of physical, mental, and social health, and the transmission of that knowledge to students and the community. On the psychology page you will find information about undergraduate B.A. and B.S. degrees in Psychology and graduate Doctoral and Masters degree programs. You'll also find information on the Psychology faculty, their areas of interest and research activities. Please look through the website, it is informative!
Very knowledgeable and caring teachers who strive to provide you the resources and instruction to meet your educational goals. The program is completely online and prepares you to increase your knowledge and make you competitive in the healthcare working environment. This program can be completed in about 12 months and is very affordable. It is also accredited by (CCNE) or Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. It further provided me with the foundation to pursue a graduate degree.
The campus offered a lot of activities. Many cultural and heritage based activities and events. Great campus and very safe. The liberal arts department was amazing and I was very please with the classes I had with the department. The psychology department was great as well!
When I first applied for college, I pursued Education. Further down the road I became dissatisfied with the Education program at UTEP and changed my major to Multidisciplinary Studies. Unfortunately, my adviser was not thorough about the options I had. I was left in the dark and confused about what I wanted to do with my education. I was fortunate enough to meet with an adviser that guided me through my current degree. I only regret not knowing about it earlier on.
I had a great experience with UTEP and the History Teacher Education program was very good for me. Although I have decided not to pursue a career in the field, I am more than confident in the skills that UTEP taught me in my years there. Dr. Keith Erekson, who currently serves as the Director at the LDS Church History Library, had a profound impact on me and helped me see the many different avenues that a History major can go as far as their career. Being a Caucasian student in a school with such history in civil rights helped mold me as a person and I feel improved my outlook on life. I can honestly say that UTEP gave me an education that went much further than the classroom and I will forever be grateful for it.
There were many positive aspects of he program I experienced. The curriculum is set up so you can take specific courses together. However, you are not able to advance further into the courses until the previous courses were completed. The initial large class size did not allow for a more individualized type of instruction.
Underrated school in my opinion; the classes, the professors and the programs available are among the best in the state. This school gave the tools and foundation to grow beyond what I had imagined for myself. I'm proud to be called a Miner, because thanks to all the progress the school has done in a near future UTEP will be an even greater university.
The Kinesiology program at UTEP is a great program. The courses they provide for the students really help prepared me for physical therapy school, which includes exercise physiology, biomechanics, personal training, and A&P. Most of these courses really dive into the human body and the responses to exercise, injury, disease, and stress. One of my favorite courses included in the Kinesiology curriculum was Fitness Programs and Appraisals (KIN 4330). Along with the semester course work, we were assigned to work at the Kinesiology department gym where they offered exercise programs to older alumni. Our assignment was to create an exercise program based off the clients evaluation (done by the professor) and guide the client through each exercise, focusing on technique and prevention of injury. It's a very competitive program and all of these courses require students to study vigorously. And most of the professors are great with communicating with the students.
I think it has a strong engineering program. It has lots of useful resources and people is very friendly.
I had a great experience, and I learned a lot. The degree plans are very interesting, and the courses help to encourage to keep learning. The University is under construction, and it is growing and improving new programs. I would improve a lot in my English skills and my writing skills because English is my second language.
