The university of houston clear lake has several programs to where people can decide what to major in.
The university has a good teacher program for education.
The professors will help as much as they can and will help[ you be successful.
Maria from Houston, TX
The University of Houston Clear Lake (UHCL) campus is consistently ranked one of the safest in the state and it is beautiful, tucked away on a nature reserve though close enough to the big city conveniences of Houston. The quality of teachers and academics here rivals any you can find at a large or private institution, yet the small size means you get personal, focused attention. All of this combined with the affordable tuition and flexible classes makes UHCL an excellent choice for pursuing your undergraduate or graduate degree(s).
Rosalinda from Houston, TX
It is close to home and great faculty. The University has plenty of partnerships and internships available with local companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and NASA for technology and science. I also think it was a fantastic Anthropology program.
