Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

I have really enjoyed my classes so far. Its tough, but doable. I am currently working full time, so the flexibility has been great. Its hard not being in the same city as the school.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program's pros are that it is affordable and will teach me the skills I need to be effective in the work force. It is also a brief program of only 30 hours. The cons are that the University of Houston is not well known for their applied economics program and that there is not much flexibility of the selection of different classes for the degree.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Houston has a good program and is striving to assert itself as a strong tier one university. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but I believe they are on the right path.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2010

University of Houston offers a strategic location in one of the largest cities in the country. Houston is also considered the energy capital for those interested in this industry. This program had great relationships with most top employers and there was a well structured recruiting process. The career fairs were very valuable and it usually results in a job. I got my job with Deloitte through the career fair. The faculty were very accomplished and the amenities in the business school were top of the line. I have no complaints and really enjoyed my program for the Master of Science in Accountancy.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am both a law student and a business student. University of Houston's law school is ranked in the top 50 and the business school is in the top 100. While the tuition for law school is expensive, the business school is very cheap. Also, the business school offers business courses that are unique to Houston, which has a thriving economy. Thus, the JD/MBA is a synergized degree that makes an education at the University of Houston worth considering.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is in favor of student success. Every professor pushes you to think beyond the scope you came in with and begin to think like a professor. There are many opportunities provided by the program to help you prepare for applying for jobs after graduation as well.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2006

I had great support from Renee Cross, who helped find me internships in the political science field. Additionally, the international office was great in finding me study abroad programs. They were helpful with finding funding.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

The communication sciences and disorders graduate program is intense but fully prepares you for a career in speech pathology. Faculty is always available and everyone is fully dedicated to your success.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the graduate school is that the work will prepare a student for any applications required by a student which is useful when it comes to graduation and going out into the work force. The research projects are very helpful for getting a step into the knowledge of performing studies and comprehension of content. The cons are relatively the same anywhere, really. The professors are not very concerned about the students and very little guidance is provided from any faculty.
