Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

In my program I feel that i am being educated on an outstanding level and will be prepared to preform in my profession with the highest level of expertise. I would say the biggest cons are the high costs of campus living and parking.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the faculty and the tremendous diversity of the student body. The classes and field placements are invaluable as well. The cons are the campus, because it is located in a terrible neighborhood, which raises safety concerns. Parking is also a huge problem on campus.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Houston has grown immensely. The quality of faculty and support is well worth the investment. While there are certain areas in need of improvement (area safety and social life), time and program growth will certainly help those areas.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Houston Law Center is a remarkable learning environment. The law school has hired the best professors, and the networking opportunities are limitless. The Career Development Office is extremely helpful and informative, and I know that I will have a job after graduation because of all of the work the Career Development Office does. The variety of classes allows students to pick classes that interest them, and I could not be more ecstatic about attending the University of Houston Law Center.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled in the University of Houston Law Center as a 1L. There are so many awesome things about University of Houston Law but one that really stands out is the faculty and staff support. They know that you are paying boatloads to go back to school and they really want to see you succeed. The teachers all have J.Ds so they know what it's like to take on law school and seeing their students do well truly means something to them. The con of course is the payment, as it is with just about all other grad programs. Houston has a pretty doable cost of living but even so, tuition is expensive and financial aid is almost always a given for those putting themselves through school.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am enrolled in the Summer MA for Theatre Educators Program which is one of very few offerings available to working teachers such as myself. Out of the options available I felt University of Houston's program really stands alone due to the travel component- not only do you get to study at UH with some phenomenal professors, but you also get to study at places like Lincoln Center in NYC, Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. For the price and workload it is well worth it to have such a diverse educational experience.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston offers both graduate and undergraduate programs in architecture, in addition to degree programs in other design-related fields. Graduate program applicants are required to submit a portfolio, with the exception of those entering the Master of Architecture Level I track.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

I attend the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston and I'm working on my Master's in Accountancy(MSACCY). Bauer has excellent faculty. Bauer has the traditional audit and tax specialties like everybody else. Bauer also has specialties in internal audit and risk. Bauer is one three schools in the US that has been named a center of excellence by the Institute of Internal Auditor(IIA). Because of my unique situation, I have already sat for two sections and already passed one section of the CPA. I'm waiting on the results for the seconds section.Bauer has prepared me well for the CPA and for life. We have the Big 4 and other accounting firms, oil and gas companies. on campus constantly.
