The University of Houston-Victoria at Katy offers a wide variety of academic programs for students who are ready to finish a bachelor’s degree or pursue a master’s degree. Whether in the classroom or online, UHV offers classes that are affordable and have a flexible schedule to help students achieve their education goals.

It’s no wonder readers of the Katy Times have named UHV a top choice to attend college in the Katy area for four years, and readers of Living Magazine have voted UHV as Best College/University in Katy/Fulshear for the third year in a row.

“UHV is proud to be a part of the Greater Houston and Crossroads communities and to provide an excellent higher education for the area for years to come,” said UHV President Bob Glenn. “At UHV, we offer more than an education to increase your skillset – students will make lasting connections with faculty and alumni, as well as the opportunity to make a positive impact in their careers and communities.”

In fall 2019, UHV Katy moved into a new instructional site at 22400 Grand Circle Blvd. near I-10 and the Grand Parkway. The three-story, 80,000-square-foot building shared with UH includes labs, studios, conference rooms, study niches, offices and a multi-purpose room.

For students who want a more traditional college experience, UHV’s main campus in Victoria offers bachelor’s degrees for freshmen and transfer students, master’s degrees, residence halls and a wide assortment of student activities. The new UHV University Commons student center and library opened in August 2019, and University South, UHV’s newest academic building dedicated to science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs opened this fall. A new residence hall also opened during the fall 2020 semester.

Regardless of where or how students attend UHV, the qualified faculty and small class sizes will ensure they receive the personal attention and encouragement needed to succeed.

“All of the professors have been so helpful and supportive,” said Quyen Trinh, a Houston resident who graduated in December 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in education with a concentration in early childhood to grade six. “They all teach real-world lessons about what we can expect in the classroom and life lessons. The faculty always pushes us to be our best, and I appreciate that.”

In the School of Arts & Sciences, transferring students have a choice of many undergraduate majors, including English, History and Spanish. Graduate programs are available online in several growing fields, such as the new Master of Science in data science that will be offered beginning January 2022.

The School of Business Administration offers Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration programs with concentrations that include accounting, finance, human resources management, management and marketing. Students can earn an MBA or Master of Accountancy for less than $16,000. UHV’s business programs are accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide achieve this distinction.

Students studying in the School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development can pursue degrees in a number of areas, including teaching, administration and supervision, educational technology, special education, professional counseling, and curriculum and instruction with a concentration in English as a Second Language/Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. The school also recently began offering a Master of Science in sport management.
