Student & Graduate Reviews

4.83 out of 5.0
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: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
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!!!!

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.

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.

Degree: Philosophy

Our department is small, but strong. Grad students and faculty are extremely collegial and available, and our placement record is quite competitive.
