Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I think my graduate program in Subsea Engineering(university of Houston) is really good for me ,It has really been helpful in that It has helped me to to have to have a well rounded type of education . I have increased in knowledge and I look forward to an exciting career and a great future. However to complete my studies , I will need the support of graduateprograms.com. I believe I will use the scholarship/ funding in rent, feeding and up keep. I also hope that It will help focus more on my academics.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is set up in 5 week increments so it is very convenient if you have a full-time job. The cons is that if you are returning to school for the first time in a long time, there may be some assumptions made by professors that they think you understand what to expect. For example, if there directions are to write a paper, you may not automatically know what format or to use multiple types of references. They assume the students know because a lot of them come straight from the undergrad program. So you have to ask in detail to make sure you cover yourself at all times.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The University of Houston is the 2nd most diverse university in the nation. I couldn't image doing my social work degree and learning about cultural competence with a class with no diversity. The opportunity for internships and employment are limitless. The University of Houston as made the list as one of the most underrated university's as well as one of the U.S. 50 most affordable universities. Cons: One major cons, is the social work program is 90 percent focused on Micro social work and 10 percent Macro social work. The university is also located in an older ward of Houston.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program has excellent professors to mentor students through their course work and thesis. The con of this university is the area of Houston it is located. University of Houston is in an extremely dangerous area of Houston which means that most students live off campus at least 45 minutes away. Any housing that is less than 30 minutes away is outrageously expensive and not doable when you are an independent student that has no aid from parents. Having to live further from campus ups the commute time and transportation costs and also creates issues for work time. I am a full time student and a full time waitress and am still barely getting by. This scholarship would help me be one step closer to paying off my loans and succeeding in my degree.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

I honestly don't think there is a better place to be if you are pursuing Human Resource Development than Houston. There are so many job and internship opportunities in Instructional Design and Organization Development with top companies in the country. Most of the professors in the program really care about the transfer of learning to the real world rather than just from an academic standpoint and help you succeed. The cons are that there are just a handful of professors teaching the courses. You will learn quickly the professors that you MUST take due to their wonderful reputation of being tough but committed to your success.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

The assistance from faculty and staff is unbelievable. You feels like you're not alone. The career development office is so helpful: they assist you in being successful as an intern and with finding a job after graduation. The networking opportunities provided are enormous. Every resource you need is provided by the Law Center. The only way to fail at UHLC is not to take the initiative to ask for help.
