The University of Houston-Clear Lake is part of the University of Houston system and operates a branch campus in Pearland. The main campus is situated on a nature and wildlife preserve on the Gulf Coast of Texas and alligators, wild turkeys, bobcats, and whitetail deer are all found near the area. A majority of students choose to study business management, social sciences, and health professions.
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.
