Dallas Baptist University

Dallas, Texas

FOR MORE THAN a century, Dallas Baptist University (DBU) has made its mission the development of students into leaders with a heart for service. Within an exciting, Christ-centered environment, caring faculty members prepare students to excel in their careers as well as life.

A nationally ranked, comprehensive liberal arts university, DBU fully integrates biblical faith with academics in more than 84 undergraduate degree programs and more than 67 accelerated bachelor’s/master’s degrees. DBU’s professors focus wholly on teaching and mentoring students, allowing students to experience transformative education that challenges them to not only discover their calling but also live out that calling, be it in the boardroom, courtroom, classroom, or operating room.

DBU’s 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. ChristianUniversitiesOnline.org rated DBU in 2017 as first among the “50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities” in the Western U.S.
