    UTEP offers over 60 master's degrees in disciplines from all six colleges. Doctoral degrees are offered in Biological Sciences, Computer Engineering, Environmental Science and Engineering, Geological Science, Materials Science and Engineering, Psychology, and an Ed.D. degree is offered in Educational Leadership and Administration. UTEP's six colleges-Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Health Sciences, and Science-comprise some 44 academic departments and offer more than 60 baccalaureate degrees.

    Expanding on its roots in the fields of science and engineering, UTEP added its first doctoral program in geological sciences in 1974 and developed a Ph.D. in computer engineering in 1990. Using more than $20 million in grants from the National Science Foundation and other agencies, UTEP has concentrated in recent years on developing state-of-the-art science laboratories.

    Its reward was approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 1993 for a doctoral program in Materials Science and Engineering. UTEP also offers the doctoral degree in Environmental Science and Engineering.

    UTEP also continues to develop its liberal arts and social sciences offerings in response to the needs of the bilingual and bicultural com- munity in which the university is situated. Recent additions include a master of fine arts degree in creative writing in which students study and write in English, Spanish or both languages, a Ph.D. in Psychology, and an Ed.D in Educational Leadership and Administration.
