Looking for a well-rounded education? An independent study found that, once again, Baylor is one of the best universities in the nation.
For the third straight year, Baylor is among the fewer than 2% of colleges and universities nationwide to be recognized with an “A” for its well-rounded, high-quality core curriculum from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni.
The group looked at which schools require students to study core subjects such as composition, literature, foreign language at an intermediate level, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics, and natural or physical science. Only three colleges in the entire nation require all seven subjects; Baylor is among 18 institutions that requires six of the seven.
Other schools on the “A” list include Georgia, Pepperdine, and the U.S. Air Force and Military academies. No other Big 12 school made the list, and only three other schools in Texas (University of Dallas, TAMU-CC and UTSA) qualified.
Sic ’em, Baylor!
