THE UNIVERSITY OF MARY HARDIN-BAYLOR (UMHB) prepares students for lives of leadership, service, and faith-informed discernment in a global society. Academic excellence, personal attention, broad-based scholarship, and a Baptist vision for education have distinguished this Christ-centered learning community for more than 177 years.

UMHB offers bachelor’s degrees in more than sixty undergraduate majors, eleven master’s degree programs, and two doctoral degrees. New programs include an online Master of Public Health, bachelor’s in social data analytics, and two new Bachelor of Christian Ministry concentrations: community care, and sports and recreation ministry. UMHB is launching a fully online, affordable, self-paced Bachelor of Applied Studies in worship leadership in 2023.

Two UMHB academic programs received accreditation in 2022. The Strength and Conditioning Education Program within the exercise physiology major was the first in the country to receive accreditation from CASCE. The engineering program is now accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The university competes in sixteen sports in the American Southwest Conference of NCAA Division III. For the second time in its 24-year history, the Crusader football program won the NCAA Division III National Championship in 2021. That same academic year, the university’s men’s basketball and men’s and women’s golf teams won ASC championships.
