• Waco isn’t the only place to earn a Baylor degree


    What do aspiring nurses in Dallas have in common with up-and-coming business leaders in Austin? It’s the same thing social workers in Houston share with ambitious professionals in the Metroplex and pastors in the Hill Country. In each of these locations, individuals are pursuing Baylor degrees in places that meets their unique personal needs — places outside of Waco.

    Our beautiful campus will always be Baylor Nation’s home base, but many students have also found a “home away from home” outside campus thanks to degree programs that bring Baylor to students outside our hometown. Undergraduate and graduate students alike have a number of options to earn a Baylor degree that can enhance their future in a time and place that fits their demanding schedules, across three Texas cities and online:

    AUSTIN: The Hankamer School of Business offers an Executive MBA Program in Austin for experienced professionals. The EMBA program educates leaders in Texas’ capital city who earn Executive MBA and Executive MBA in Healthcare degrees.

    Truett Seminary opened an extension campus in Austin in 2013, which offers students the same content and degree offerings as those attending Truett Seminary in Waco full-time. Austin students must take some classes in Waco, but can ease the burden of commuting through the wide array of classes offered in Austin.

    DALLAS: The Louise Herrington School of Nursing (LHSON) has provided a Baylor presence in the heart of Dallas since 1950, when Baylor University partnered with an existing nursing school established by what would eventually become Baylor University Medical Center. Conveniently located next door to the Baylor Health Care System’s flagship campus in Dallas, LHSON offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in a city with a strong healthcare pedigree.

    Baylor Business has also long run an Executive MBA Program in Dallas, offering professionals throughout DFW the chance to earn Executive MBA and Executive MBA in Healthcare degrees while continuing their careers in the Metroplex and extending the great network of Baylor alumni there.

    HOUSTON: The Diana R. Garland School of Social Work offers the newest out-of-town opportunity for Baylor students. Social work students can now earn their master’s degree in Houston. Like Baylor Social Work in Waco, the Houston program is located downtown, in the heart of the community whose needs students serve.

    ONLINE: If even those cities aren’t convenient enough, online MBAs and online Master of Science in Nursing degrees provide opportunities to earn a Baylor degree from almost anywhere.

    Sic ’em, farflung Bears!
