UHV Katy recently moved into a convenient new location shared with the University of Houston at 22400 Grand Circle Blvd. Located near the intersection of Interstate 10 and the Grand Parkway, the three-story, 80,000-square-foot building is home to academic programs in all three UHV academic schools: Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development.

UHV also has agreements with area community colleges, including Houston and Lone Star, allowing for a seamless transfer to UHV Katy. Students can choose to pursue degrees in a variety of fields.

In the School of Arts & Sciences, transferring students have a choice of many undergraduate majors, including mathematics, digital gaming and simulation, criminal justice and psychology. Graduate programs are available in several growing fields, such as master’s degrees in computer science or biomedical sciences, or the Specialist in School Psychology degree.

The School of Business Administration offers Bachelor and Master of Business Administration programs with concentrations that include accounting, finance, human resources management, management and marketing. Students also can enroll in the university’s new Master of Accountancy program. UHV’s business programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a distinction achieved by less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide.

School of Education, Health Professions & Human Development students can pursue degrees in many areas, including administration and supervision, special education, curriculum and instruction, and an online RN to BSN in Nursing. UHV offers master’s degrees in school and clinical mental health counseling through programs accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs.
