  • Degrees and Programs

    UTEP's six undergraduate colleges--business administration, education, engineering, health sciences, liberal arts, and science--comprise some 44 academic departments and offer more than 62 baccalaureate degrees. Graduate degrees offered by UTEP include 58 master's degrees in disciplines from all six colleges. Doctoral degrees are offered in Biological Sciences, Computer Engineering, Environmental Science and Engineering, Geological Science, History, Materials Science and Engineering, Psychology, and an Ed.D. degree is offered in Educational Leadership and Administration.

    Strengthening 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. Capitalizing on major grants from the National Science Foundation and other bodies, UTEP has concentrated in recent years on developing state-of-the-art science laboratories, where undergraduate and graduate students participate in research that is relevant to the border region.

    The College of Education plays an active role in several local, regional, and national projects to improve teacher education and public school administration, including the graduation of better-prepared science and math teachers.

    UTEP also continues to develop its liberal arts and social sciences offerings in response to the needs of the bilingual/bicultural community the university serves. To serve this goal, UTEP has added a Ph.D. program in History that focuses on the U.S./Mexico Borderlands.

    The College of Health Sciences and several cooperative programs with other institutions provide the region with a broad spectrum of degree opportunities in Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Family Nurse Practice, Health Sciences, Kinesiology, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Public Health, and Speech-Language Pathology.

    With programs accredited by AACSB - the International Association for Management Education, the College of Business Administration plays a dynamic role in preparing UTEP students to compete in a global economy.
