Welcome to the
College of Education
University of Houston - Clear Lake
It is the mission of the University of Houston-Clear Lake's College of Education to
prepare outstanding educators who inspire and positively shape future generations.
Thus, we take great pride in being recognized for our standards of excellence by the
American Association of State Colleges and Universities as recipient of the Christa McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Teacher Education.
At UHCL, you will be learning from recognized experts. Our focus is giving serious
students like you the skills you need to launch successful careers. We produce graduates
who possess a unique blend of exceptional knowledge and real-world experience.
It's this hands-on experience that really sets UHCL apart. Our hallmark, two-semester
internship program puts you into our local schools – in some of the best school districts
in Texas – to learn every aspect of the profession from outstanding educators.
Our nationally accredited programs feature curricula designed to give you an advantage.
What makes our curriculum so special? UHCL is an innovative, partnership-oriented
institution. We created a Professional Development Laboratory School with a local
school district to conduct research and test new techniques. You won't find a university
more engaged in professional development.
Welcome to UHCL. I am sure you will enjoy our beautiful campus as you work with our
exceptional dedicated faculty and staff. I wish you all the best in your studies.
