Founded in 1960 as East Harris County Union Junior College, the current San Jacinto College has grown to include three campuses and a online learning for the convenience of it’s students. There are associate degrees leading toward employment after graduation or for transfer to a four-year college or university, and there are certificates that can earned. Students here have the option of centering their studies in Business, Career & Technical Education, Fine Arts, Health Sciences, Liberal Arts, Industrial Technology, and STEM—which has a partnership with NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
There are also courses available for continuing and professional development, to help employees advance in their careers. Students can also take advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities on campus, including a golf course, spa, and a concert hall.
