Wayland Baptist University

Plainview, Texas

The keys to success at college can be found in the opportunities. A university should be a place where experiences bring education to life, building meaningful relationships, encountering challenging academics, finding friends who share common interests, and visiting new places through missions and study-abroad opportunities. The truth is, college is what you make it.

Wayland Baptist University (WBU) is a small, Christian university that offers big, life-changing experiences and prepares students for challenging and rewarding careers. With a unique apprenticeship model of education, students work with and alongside professors learning the skills necessary to succeed in their chosen field.

Wayland offers unparalleled research opportunities for undergraduates in math and sciences, languages and literature, business, and other academic fields. Graphic design students are earning recognition across the United States and around the globe as their artwork hangs in galleries in Russia, Serbia, and beyond. Education students are introduced to the public school classroom early in their degree process. Students all across campus take advantage of the opportunities provided to them.

Committed to academics and Christian values, Wayland is a place where students learn, grow, and develop a healthy worldview with a Christian perspective.

College will change a person, and a small Christian college will change a person in big ways. Wayland is here to help make that change.
