Graduate Student Admissions at UHCL

When you reach the point that you’re ready for more – more opportunities for career advancement, more in-depth examination of your field and more chances to learn from both expert faculty and classmates who have years of experience themselves – the graduate programs at University of Houston-Clear Lake are ready for you.

We offer 45 practical masters and three doctoral degrees across each of our four colleges - Business, Education, Human Sciences and Humanities and Science and Engineering. Graduate education has always been a crucial part of our identity as a university; in fact, we offer more graduate degrees than undergraduate degrees and nearly 40 percent of our students are enrolled in graduate programs.

Your Degree on Your Time

We realize that the everyday pressures of work and family – not to mention finances – make it unrealistic for most people to drop everything and head back to college. We get it. That’s why we offer classes online, in the evening and at off-campus locations. If you want to earn your graduate degree, we want to make sure you have a convenient way to get it.

Visit Us

If you could invent your own campus, far from the noise and pressure of everyday life, you’d come up with something a lot like UHCL. We’re located in a 524-acre nature and wildlife preserve, yet easily accessible to the NASA Johnson Space Center and 20 minutes from Galveston. Tours are offered several times weekly. Reserve your spot today, or join us at an open house or another admission event.
