Brownwood, Texas

A CHRISTIAN LIBERAL ARTS institution, Howard Payne University (HPU) prides itself on fostering a close community where personal connection is valued. Through teaching, learning, and service, the faculty and staff truly invest in students’ success.

At HPU, students choose from more than one hundred majors, minors, and pre-professional programs in seven schools—business, Christian studies, education, humanities, music and fine arts, nursing, and science and mathematics. The Guy D. Newman Honors Academy challenges students with a multidisciplinary curriculum and exciting travel opportunities.

HPU is one of the first Baptist universities in Texas to offer undergraduate degrees and a Master of Arts in youth ministry. Additionally, HPU offers three other master’s programs: business administration, theology and ministry, and sport and wellness leadership.
