Houston Baptist University is a national, comprehensive university, with 68 undergraduate and 42 graduate degrees, along with 19 certificate programs. The Pinky Pampell Online Division, launched in 2017, reaches students with the same quality education for which HBU is known. In 17 NCAA Division I sports, Huskies compete at the highest level.

HBU is a Houston classic, growing with the city it calls home. The College of Engineering is the newest, beginning in fall 2018 to offer bachelor of science degrees in computer science, cyber engineering, and electrical engineering. The prestigious Archie W. Dunham College of Business, with the HBU McNair Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise, now offers a Master of Science degree in management and entrepreneurship.

The HBU School of Nursing and Allied Health recently launched two master’s of science in nursing tracks: family nurse practitioner and pediatric nurse practitioner in primary care, as well as a Master of Science in kinesiology. In the HBU College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the Doctor of Education in special education leadership became the university’s second doctoral program.

Houston Baptist University is fulfilling its mission of instilling in students a passion for academic, professional, and spiritual excellence stemming from its central confession, “Jesus Christ is Lord.”
