HOUSTON BAPTIST UNIVERSITY (HBU) is a national, comprehensive Christian university with seventy undergraduate and 46 graduate degrees, including certificate programs and three doctoral programs. In addition to a robust, on-campus community, students further their education through the Pampell Online Division.
Established in 1960, HBU is known for offering “A Higher Education”—one that emphasizes academic excellence and encourages students to integrate faith and learning under the guidance of world-class faculty. HBU remains true to its central confession, “Jesus Christ is Lord.”
Learners benefit from small-group instruction, Christian discipleship, and mentorship. Opportunities for research begin at the undergraduate level, as do internships and job opportunities. Students move toward fulfilling their callings in the Honors College, College of Science and Engineering, School of Nursing and Allied Health, Archie W. Dunham College of Business, College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, College of Arts and Humanities, and School of Christian Thought.
HBU’s Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty is currently under construction and will feature a main building modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
HBU is located in Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, in the Sharpstown area, minutes from the downtown district.
