Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Well diversified group of students, excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Cons: Area can sometimes feel unsafe
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Baylor Psychology and Neuroscience is mainly psychology with only three labs that could be described as involved in neuroscience research. That aside those three labs do good research and my lab in particular is very active in publishing in peer reviewed journals. The workload for myself is very strenuous, but doable. Baylor is a great school that is unfortunately located in a city that doesn't really have the feel of a college town.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

Excellent faculty and excellent funding make Baylor a no-regrets choice for graduate work. I was stimulated mentally and socially to become a top-notch scholar and person - and the faculty didn't believe becoming either of those were optional. The program was rigorous and expectations were high, but the result was worth all the effort.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Its a very great program with great professors who actually care about your success. They'd rather see you succeed than sink without a doubt. There is also little Intra-grad student and inter-lab competition, which means collaborations are possible and at times encouraged. This serves to offer a more cohesive cohort rather than a competitive one. Aka, there's a good amount of social support. The program is rather selective on who it brings in per year.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros are that you get a degree quickly so you can get back into the workplace and pay off those loans. We also get a lot of hands on experiences and great direction in the areas we want to focus on. Baylor is a great campus and our professors genuinely care about our success and future. Cons is that it's a very intensive program so it means very little sleep and a ton of hard work (which coincidentally is a pro - because you know you did the work for it!!) The only other con I will mention is that our building is old and moldy and we are constantly neglected with funding for a more advanced classroom experience.
4.33 out of 5.0
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.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

Very good faculty support. Strong in quantitative methodology and religion focus
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2014

I enjoy the life here, people pretty nice and beautiful campus. But not too much fun in a small department and in a small town.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Great place to get started with your area of discipline.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

Pros: The School of Social Work is small, making it easy to approach and build rapport with the faculty. The courses were rigorous, and made me feel prepared for the licensing exam post graduation. The School of Social Work also is very connected with the Waco Texas community. It was easy to get an internship. Cons: The School of Social Work was not connected with the rest of campus. Wish the school was in a bigger metropolitan city.
