First, UH has undergone tremendous change in their degree program structure since I graduated. Anyone reading my review must understand this before taking my review to heart. The mission of UH was to provide educational opportunities to non-traditional students and I was a classic case: I worked full time while pursuing my degree. The Anthropology department was less accommodating that most in that there were very few late classes to be taken after regular working hours. Fortunately, my full time job allowed me to go to school during the day. The school was also not supportive in that there were no counselors made available to me to find alternatives ways to pay for my education or for me to take advantage of study abroad opportunities. Furthermore, the professors were unsympathetic to people working to earn their degree and made little effort to help students find ways to apply the concepts in a real-world setting. If I had the degree to do over again, I would advise undergraduates to be aggressive in finding alternatives to funding their degree than working full time and to find a program that was focused on applicability. I am recommending the school now because I understand substantial changes have occurred, but would urge applicants to be realistic about what they are expecting from their degree and the school's offerings.
The University of Houston has an outstanding business school. However, you will get out of it what you put into it. There is plenty of opportunity to get involved with student organizations and it would be very helpful if you are to do so. Many of the professors are strongly involved within these organizations and the alumni of the organizations helps out quite a bit. The sales program at the University of Houston is what really makes it shine. There is a 98% job placement rate out of the program for entry level sales careers which can be quite lucrative. Many different companies partner with the university in order to be able to hire students graduating from the business school. I can say that I did not enjoy my time in any program besides the business school. It seems like the majority of the schools focus is around this program, so keep that in mind when applying.
I graduated from the Honors College at the University of Houston in May 2018. I can honestly say that I would do it all over again. Being in the Honors College, especially Bauer Honors has molded me as a young woman and provided me the resources and network to launch my own consulting business while I was in school. Bauer respects and capitalizes on the entrepreneurial spirit. That is a part of the reason I was able to get started on my business so early. They help you discover your passions and define a path for you. They are also adamant about helping you secure internships and full-time opportunities post-graduation. I love the University of Houston.
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.
