University of Houston-Clear Lake's College of Human Sciences and Humanities believes that education is enhanced by hands-on experiences that build on what they learn in the classroom. From exhibiting the art of the budding artists in Bachelor of Fine Arts program to exciting opportunities for future counselors and therapists to work in a more clinical setting, we are dedicated to building future leaders in a variety of fields.

Foreign Language and English Enhancement
