POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • U.S. News & World Report ranks nine UH programs in its top 50.
  • The Princeton Review places UH among the nation’s top institutions for undergraduate education, affordability, and career preparation.

The University of Houston (UH) empowers learning, discovery, leadership and engagement among more than 45,000 students and features world-renowned faculty within 15 academic colleges, including the College of Nursing and recently established Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts. The university also fulfills the needs of students beyond Houston by offering degree programs at the University of Houston at Sugar Land and University of Houston at Katy.

Home to more than 300 degree programs, UH offers the first doctorate in the U.S. in Spanish-language creative writing; it also established the first graduate subsea engineering program in the U.S. UH’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program consistently ranks among the top in the nation, and intellectual property and health law are among the top 10 law programs.

With pioneering research and breakthroughs, the university addresses the country’s most pressing concerns. UH leads five nationally-funded centers to conduct research in the areas of energy, psychology, superconductivity, laser mapping, and homeland security.

The UH Technology Bridge boasts more than 30,000 square feet of incubator space and nearly 200,000 square feet of built-up space ideally suited for large laboratories, pilot scale facilities and light manufacturing.

With 16 titles in the last five years, UH athletes in 15 sports programs excel in the game and in life. UH student-athletes are also scholars who have joined the ranks of the American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team.
