Undergraduate students interested in the science of vision, a biomedical graduate research career, or a career as a vision-science or ophthalmic-related specialist can enroll in UIW’s pre-optometry track or Vision Science Program. The 28BS in Vision29Science will30also provide students with an opportunity to earn a degree that will satisfy the requirements for entrance in the School of Optometry as well as other health-related professional programs, such as medicine and dentistry, offered through other colleges. The UIW School of Optometry has received pre-accreditation approval by the Accreditation Council on Optometric Education of the American Optometric Association and will also offer students an opportunity to pursue a Spanish certificate. The UIW School of Optometry is the only faithbased School of Optometry in the U.S..

The H-E-B School of Business & Administration is proud to provide students the ability to take their education and apply it to real-world issues while still in school. The highly successful Capstone programs allow students to work directly with business professionals throughout the world on projects that result in hands-on experiences. UIW was one of the first universities in the country to emphasize an experiential, client-project approach for undergraduates. In our Capstone classes faculty integrate knowledge gained throughout the degree program and work with students to apply it using a case study approach and then with a real life client. Students work in multi-disciplinary teams with members from the various concentrations (accounting, management, marketing, MIS, etc.) represented in the project team. Undergraduate students may pursue bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration (B.B.A.) with a choice of several concentrations, such as accounting, Hispanic marketing, and international business, as well as an accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree in accounting. All business programs are nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The goal of the BBA degree program is for each student to develop a broad understanding of how the elements and processes of business organizations relate to one another and to the external environment.

On Tuesday, UIW students continue their academic journey full of energy, as the week is just beginning. Future educators can be found at the Dreeben School of Education where they are prepared for work inside the classroom. The education faculty is a diverse group of educators, all certified teachers, who frequently meet with area school districts to gauge their needs and ensure that UIW stays at the forefront of educational movements. With small classes of 8 to 20 students, the teacher education faculty is able to provide individual support and assistance to students as they progress through the program. Field work, for our students, begins as early as their first 14 year in the Dreeben School of Education to provide future educators a sense of comfort in the classroom. Education students spend more than 400 21 hours in the field even before student teaching begins. Our goal is to have a UIW graduate teaching in every school in our area. UIW offers Texas certification in elementary, secondary, and all-level teaching fields. 28 In addition, the university’s J.E. and L.E. Mabee Library is the primary research facility for children’s play and play environments and home to the largest research collection on this topic in the United States. Dr. Joe Frost, often called the contemporary father of play advocacy and known all over the world for over 30 years of work on early childhood and children’s play environments, donated the collection.

By Wednesday, students in the School of Interactive Media and Design (SIMD) are completely immersed in their project of choice. SIMD integrates five academic programs in a dynamic way to better serve the needs of our students and all our programs emphasize the use of the latest software and computer technology. Whatever the project, SIMD is abuzz with activity as students gain hands-on experience and prepare for life beyond UIW. Computer Information Systems (CIS) is among the many sought after degrees in SIMD. The CIS 16 17 15 was developed 18 a program for students wanting technical understanding of computer systems as well as knowledge about the business environment in which they are often used. CIS classes often include applications in other subject areas, providing for students to work 23 24 22 an opportunity 25 together with the community. An interesting facet of CIS is the use of “Second Life,” a real-time 3-D multi-user virtual environment to enhance the learning experience in several classes.
