Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2015

Our department is small, but strong. Grad students and faculty are extremely collegial and available, and our placement record is quite competitive. Our comprehensive exams in the history of philosophy give us a broad background in areas of philosophy beyond our own, which helps with teaching and on the job market.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is relatively small. While this means less faculty, there is a more intimate feel to the program. Everyone seems very friendly. I got one-on-one advising with the program director before the start of the program. I feel welcome to ask questions at all times. While it is expensive to go to school here, the program is a semester shorter than most programs so we will be able to work much sooner. There is not much to do around Waco but this has simply allowed me to concentrate more on my studies.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

This is the first year that Baylor is offering its Online MBA program. So far, the experience has been tremendous! The coursework is relevant to my current career, it is rigourous enough where I feel I am getting the value for the educational costs, my cohorts have a very diverse background that leads to very interesting and thought-provoking discussions in our online discussion board, and it provides the flexibility needed to continue my full-time job. All in all, I think this is the best thing that is in the marketplace right now!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Baylor offers unprecedented career development support and professors have an open door policy with office hours weekly to meet with you. They take a very hands on approach to making sure you learn the skills necessary to succeed.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Baylor runs a smaller program with 25-35 members per class. You really get to know everyone in the program, as well as the professors. The professors are genuinely there to help everyone learn, and the program administrators are extremely helpful. So far, one of the best things about the program has been the networking. I'm in the healthcare focused eMBA, and have already had several practical benefits to networking within the class. I highly recommend Baylor's program.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of getting a MM at Baylor University are abundant. You get one-on-one faculty student time to hone your craft. It is a small program so you get a lot of attention and critique. The con is it is a small program. While this is also positive, a negative side is less competition and it is harder to find appropriate operas to perform.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I love The Louise Herrington School of Nursing!!! The Family Nurse Practitioner program is great. Our professors are always available and respond quickly to issues and concerns. This is a loving/ christian atmosphere. Not only will you learn nursing but you will aqcuire servant leadership skills and gain a real appreciation for compassionate professors.There is nothing negative I could say about Baylor. The program is wonderful!!!!
