Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

The professors really seem to care and support the students. They take time to help you understand.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

The speech-language pathology program at UTEP is an amazing program which emphasizes research as its foundation. The faculty is very involved and available for the students, and the on-campus practicum helps prepare the students for the following year when going off campus. The unique block scheduling allows for sufficient study time and amount of clinical hours as well. The only con for this program would be the old builiding in which our classes and clinic are located in. Overall this program is preparing me as a current graduate student to become a well rounded clinician and researcher through experience and course work.
0.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2010

- Easy to get into graduate studies: Almost accepts everyone who applies, so personal development and peer competitiveness is questionable - Faculty members qualification is average but networking is lacking so overall below average - The few good things about the college: Can have a higher degree and low living expenses Overall, if you can completely self dependent and strong enough to get around yourself, this is the best school. But if you need help and take advantage of University reputation and need a high value job, this is not really the place.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2012

My experience in the University of Texas at El Paso has been very positive. I came here to study a BFA and I continued with a MAIS because I was very happy here. The instructors, the students, and my bosses have been great and very supportive. I have had many instructors with a very high level of preparation. This university support Mexican students, the PASE program has helped many Mexicans to come to study here; it has permitted me to obtain my education in the United States. In general, my experience here has been very good, I would like to stay here in El Paso, but sadly, UTEP does not offer a MA in Art History, the degree that I am looking for.

Degree: Finance

they ask for too many things but overall the professors know their topics
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Our special education program for ESL or Bilingual Ed educators is excellent because of the vast exposure to our sister city, Juarez, MX. But the University does lack exposure to other kinds of cultures and diversity therefor the preparation to deal with such diversity in our own classrooms is not very effective.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Limited parking and access to campus. I can not say enough about the staff and their absolute dedication to your success!
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

The Pros are that the COMM program is very in depth and you learn a lot of material. The Con is that the program is too short and you feel like you lack knowledge in some areas.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are that the professors and the environment are really good. The program prepares the students with useful information that will help them in the future to get a job. The cons of the graduate program is that they do not provide financial help or guidelines to the students to pay for school.
