Wayland Baptist University

Plainview, Texas

ESTABLISHED IN 1908, Wayland Baptist University is the oldest institution of higher education on the High Plains of Texas. The university’s reach goes beyond the eighty-acre resident campus in Plainview, a beautiful city of about 23,000, with campuses in San Antonio, Lubbock, Amarillo, and Wichita Falls, in addition to five others across the nation.

With an 18:1 student–faculty ratio, Wayland fosters academic success from a distinctively Christian perspective as students receive hands-on education by working shoulder-to-shoulder with professors. The university offers unparalleled undergraduate research opportunities in math and sciences, languages and literature, business, and other fields.

With undergraduate majors in 93 disciplines, 65 unique master’s programs, and a doctoral management program, academic development opportunities abound. Fifteen graduate-level certificate programs are offered, a nursing school is part of the San Antonio campus, and there is a dual degree program in mathematics and engineering.

Wayland offers academically challenging programs in every area of study. Success is a tradition with 92 percent employed or enrolled in graduate school one year after graduation.

Wayland fields seventeen intercollegiate athletic programs. The Flying Queens women’s basketball program holds the record for consecutive wins by a women’s or men’s team.

Wayland is where meaningful relationships are built around collaboration, common academic and social interests, and opportunities.
