Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017

At Texas Southern University, I completed my M.A in Sociology. There was where I met some of the university's most intellectual minds and the professors were well-versed in the subject matter. The professors did not make the journey of completion easy but when you are passionate about your studies, the work isn't viewed as difficult. I've completed very fulfilling projects and will soon be in the process of using those very tools that were gained and created to help me in the completion of my second master's. I had a great experience in my graduate studies and all of my former professors have become lifetime mentors.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

As a graduate in the public administration arena, I am able to use my years of experience (26 years) and my degree to move up in a management role in a government organization. We never stop learning and I will encourage any student to continue their education.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The degree plan for the Public Administration program has been enlightening so far. I have been challenged thoroughly due to the amount of open ended responses I have been allowed. Professors seek to create open dialogs among peers as to promote a more life like working structure with different ideals. It has been a challenge balancing out the acceptance of others opinions on situations that have influenced me and information that I have brought into the program. I enjoyed the quantitative theories that have been discussed and how to better apply them to local government specifically. Overall the program has served me well and I intend to use what I have learned to better my career in government.

Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2017

Great Education. Texas Southern University is family. The Professors, Administrators really care, they continue to provide support in my development and growth. I am forever grateful to my Alma mater. Texas Southern University is like no other, where else can you get the one on one education and support. Sure, anyone who was in my shoes would have had their choice of any University in Texas, but Texas Southern University is the best.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2007

Texas Southern University is one of the few historically Black Institutions with a law school which is the most diverse law school in the nation might I add. As an HBCU this university has outstanding program in areas of science,engineering, pharmacy, and public administration along with a host of other programs which guarantee a career upon graduation. TSU also is uniquely placed in the heart of a historic community which is attached to the university in every aspect. TSU is a HBCU however the diversity is culturally high due to the international recruiting efforts on campus. Texas Southern University faculty had the public relations skills to understand and build relationships with their students. The professors were very involved with students who showed the determination and willingness to complete their degree with little distractions. I was active in the marching band as a majorette and the band director was active in his band members education as this was the focus and purpose for attending.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

Texas Southern University is a good school. The pharmacy program is great. The pharmacology professors are great and extremely helpful! The only thing is that the administrators are hard to get a hold of. They rarely reply emails or never at all! The same goes for the rest of the school. The financial aid is the worst. They never call or notify you if something is wrong with your financial aid. When you ask them why they didn't notify you, their reply is that it's your responsibility to find out. Or you will ask them a question concerning your fafsa and one person will say something but when you come back and ask the same question to another person, they will give you a different answer. They never seem to be in synch. They never know who to send you to to solve your problem. They will send you to someone across campus, then when you get there that person will say "oh no, go to so and so" and then you go to the next person across campus and that person will send you to the first place you start off from. It is absolutely ridiculous.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended Texas Southern University, a small Historical Black University (HBU) in Houston, TX. The students to professor ratio was fair. The financial department was good and helpful. The professors are stellar and the quality of education can be put up against any top colleges in the Houston area such as University of Houston, or Rice University. Texas Southern has one of the best law school and pharmacy school in the U.S. I'm extremely proud of my degree and the university I chose to obtained it.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Texas Southern University is a great institution. The campus has a welcoming environment and the staff go above and beyond to make sure your educational needs are met! I am learning in the optimal environment and I have access to everything that a large city like Houston has. TSU is in a great location. You are close to a major airport and downtown Houston.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2010

Getting my Master Public Administration from Texas Southern University prepared me to become a strong, and effective leader and manager. I developed quantitative and professional skills that will forever shape my future. The professors offered a wealth of knowledge and opportunities to grow as an individual and enhance your knowledge. Although it is a HBCU, students of all cultures could benefit from this extraordinary program.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2016

The master's of science in Human Performance program at Texas Southern University is highly rigorous. It provides students with an intense and thorough understanding of the impact of sports psychology, adaptive learning for physical education, intricate elements of exercise science, and in-depth research of the motivational aspects of sports. A student can expect to spend at least twenty hours a week researching, writing, and reviewing scholarly work by contributors to the field of Kinesiology. Careful attention should be given to working closely with peers, but more importantly seeking the advisement and guidance of professors to curate your graduate learning experience towards your career goals. Building a relationship with faculty and networking with their social circle is essential to becoming a presenter at conferences affiliated with the program, working to publish a scholarly article, and exposure to opportunities in your career path. The program provides for students to take a dynamic approach to finishing the curriculum within the specified time-frame.
