THROUGH A CHRIST-CENTERED education, Dallas Baptist University (DBU) strives to develop servant leaders ready to make an impact on the world through service. By fully integrating biblical faith with academic learning, DBU prepares students to excel in any calling.

With dedicated professors who focus on teaching and mentoring, DBU offers 78 undergraduate degree programs and 67 accelerated bachelor’s/master’s degrees. DBU has one of the lowest costs among Christian colleges in the U.S., while its proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex gives students numerous opportunities for internships and service-learning experiences. From taking mission trips abroad to volunteering at local homeless shelters and food banks, DBU students have a heart for changing the world for the glory of God.

Situated atop a hill overlooking Mountain Creek Lake, DBU’s gated campus community features lakes, gardens, gazebos, fountains, waterfalls, and nature trails. The National Public Gardens Association has recognized the campus as an arboretum—one of only 35 colleges in the country to receive such a designation—and the Arbor Day Foundation named it a “Tree Campus USA.” Christian Universities Online rated DBU as no. 1 among the “50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities” in 2017.
