University of Houston Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
I attended the University of Houston-Main Campus for my undergraduate program. I earned my bachelors of science in psychology with a minor in health from the university if 2013. The university has a strong blended online program that works with their students schedules for working people to obtain their degree. I wish there was better counseling and organization to help students wanting to enroll, then pursue psychology degrees.
Unfortunately, this online masters in early childhood education program is not deserving of the high scoring received by the US news. It was equal to the level and education I experienced at community college if not worse. The program was created to pump out graduates and not genuinely to teach students best early childhood methods and research. They hook you with outstanding professors semester 1 then water it down semester 2. By semester 3 you can expect the professors to NEVER respond to your emails, NO GRADES and basically NO COMMUNICATION. They lack advanced technology abilities to connect online students with professors: so dont expect to truly feel like a part of a learning community. The On a positive note: its EASY to maintain an A+ and receive your masters certificate. Bottom line Is: if you are in the graduate program to LEARN, dont go to this University. If you are in it for a quick squeeze and easy raise, this will work.
The Electrical Engineering degree offered at University of Houston is thorough and highly valuable. The diversity of courses offered in many different concentrations prepare the students for a career as an professional engineer. There are also many resources that students can use to find internships and full-time positions.
I graduated with a Bachelor's in Advertising five years ago. Overall, I enjoyed my time at UH and was most interested in courses related to my career. However I do feel as though some majors (such as mine) need to have more required classes related to their degree. They could probably cut back on the number of electives or requiring a minor. Because of this, I felt somewhat unprepared or unqualified to hold a position in Advertising, so now I am going back to school again to work on my Masters. But the quality of classes are usually pretty good, and I feel that they do provide a lot for their students.
I enjoyed attending the University of Houston because of the diversity and resources available to students. Each year was a new experience that increased growth within my degree. There were many opportunities to network ans gain experience within my field.
The University of Houston is amazing! It is a tier-one research university with great faculty and staff available all the time for your assistance. It is tough especially in the STEM field which challenges students to study hard and learn the material not just for one semester but long term. You will be tired. You will have lack of sleep occasionally but in the end it's all worth it. If you stay on top of your material it is a smooth ride where you just have to manage your time and find an efficient learning manner. I plan to go into Optometry but my biology degree has helped me gain so much knowledge in the science field that is useful in healthcare and which I continue to use in the real world. During school you're like why are we learning this? and then next year you find yourself using that information explaining to someone the human physiology. This is a very diverse campus which has a lot of events and organizations to help you get involved and meet new people. The learning experience is essential to your future but there is always fun events to enhance your university experience and make college the best time of your life. The University of Houston does just that and it makes people who attend it feel at home.
The University of Houston was an amazing school and huge part of my life. The classes were tough but fun, the professors were very helpful, and the Kinesiology was the best choice I ever made. The advisors were top notch and were able to answer every question I had for them. The students on campus were more than friends they became family to me. This is a place to call home and the city of Houston is extremely diverse.
While at the University of Houston- main campus, I experienced and was exposed to a wide variety of students and professors. Because of the various distinctions among professors I was exposed to vastly differing teaching methods that allowed me to adapt and become acclimated to the professors in my graduate program. Thank you University of Houston for preparing me for my Doctorate program in physical therapy at the Texas Women's University!
It is a great school that has a huge Alumni that contributes back to the school. Major construction has happened since I started in 2010, updating the physical campus but also new technology and other resources keeps the University of Houston at the top of their game.
As a student studying to become a music educator, the university of Houston is one of the best places to go. If your goal is to become a elementary, middle, or high school teacher, this program will not only give you all the necessary tools, but also the best networking connections in Texas. There is good money to be made in the music classes of Texas and you are almost guaranteed to get a job our first year out of college. If you are interested in instrumental performance however, it may not be the best place. The emphasis is so much on training educators that the performance opportunities end up becoming lessons about how to teach the piece rather than play it.
