4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics offered at this school are great. So far with my experience I've had professors that were well versed in the subject matter and taught it effectively.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am not in the program yet, but I am very excited to soon be applying into the program and start my internship

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Here at UTPA, a majority of the students are either majoring in business or psychology. I am majoring in psychology, and so far the experience has been very good. There are two psychology clubs, and the undergraduate curriculum is good. As for facilities, the psychology building is currently being updated (such as adding a 'smart classroom'), and the work they have already done is good.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The registration process is easy, however if you want to get into a course, you have to register extremely early or else the classes will fill up and will leave you unable to take the class. The professors are good, they know what they are talking about when it comes to the subject, and most of them teach similar material to other instructors of the same course.

5 College Freshman

Academics: there are people that can teach you
