West Houston students achieve excellence at UHV Katy

The University of Houston-Victoria at Katy offers a wide selection of academic programs and the flexibility desired by students ready to finish a bachelor’s degree or pursue a master’s degree in the classroom or online.

Classes are affordable, and students don’t have to leave West Houston – or even their own home.

It’s no wonder readers of the Katy Times have voted UHV as the Best College in Katy four years in a row.

“UHV is proud to offer an excellent higher education to students in Greater Houston and the Crossroads,” UHV President Bob Glenn said. “No matter what phase of life our students are in – whether they are freshmen straight out of high school, community college transfer students, single parents or working professionals – UHV is ready to help them make their mark. That’s why we offer excellent courses in Katy, Victoria and online to meet the needs of all our students.”

UHV Katy, 2002 W. Grand Parkway N., Building 2, is conveniently located off Grand Parkway and Franz Road, just north of Interstate 10. The third floor features classrooms, faculty offices, study areas and a Multi-Purpose Room to serve the Katy community. This fall, UHV Katy will move to a new instructional site at 22502 Grand Circle Blvd. near I-10 and the Grand Parkway.

For students looking for 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 will open by the start of the fall 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.

“UHV was a wonderful experience and an excellent place to learn,” said Mary Naser, a Houston resident who graduated in May with her bachelor’s degree in early childhood to sixth-grade education and plans to teach in the Houston area. “All of my professors were readily available when I had questions and were happy to help make sure everyone understood the material. They were outstanding examples for me as I begin my teaching career. I want to have that same attitude when I teach my students.”

UHV has agreements with many Houston area community colleges, allowing for a seamless transfer to UHV Katy. Students can choose to pursue degrees in a variety of fields through UHV’s three academic schools: Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, and Education, Health Professions & Human Development.

In the School of Arts & Sciences, transferring students have a choice of many undergraduate majors, including mathematics, digital gaming and simulation, and psychology.

Graduate programs are available in several growing fields, such as master’s degrees in computer science or forensic psychology, or a Specialist in school psychology degree.

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, adult and higher education, special education with an emphasis in applied behavior analysis, curriculum and instruction, as well as an educational diagnostician certification.
