The Online Student Experience

The online graduate programs from Baylor carry on the University’s mission: to educate students for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment in a caring community.

Baylor offers an engaged academic community of online learners the resources and depth of connection to our institution as our on-campus community. Our EdD, MPH, MSW, and CSD online graduate programs provide a blend of collaborative online tools, real-world experience, and personalized support to transform students into worldwide leaders.

Online Learning Tools

We take great efforts to ensure our online learning experiences maintain the connections, engagement, and spirited interactions that make Baylor such a vibrant place to learn. Online students attend live, webcam-enabled classes each week and complete coursework that facilitates face-to-face connections among peers, professors, and industry experts.

Just a few of the many factors that set apart learning online at Baylor:

Small live classes that facilitate close collaboration and discussion

Personal facetime with peers and faculty in and outside of class

A comprehensive coursework management platform available 24/7

Assignments built by experienced Baylor faculty and content developers

Social tools that facilitate deep peer-to-peer and professional relationships

A full-service mobile app for all coursework and academic planning

Real-World Experiences

Real-world experiences are an important aspect of online programs at Baylor. These engaging in-person requirements — such as on-campus immersions or in-field capstone projects — help bring students’ new knowledge beyond the screen and facilitate deeper connections to both their peers and the Baylor community at large.

During these outings, students will engage in hands-on practice of new skills, gain valuable research and leadership experience, explore the Baylor campus or host cities, and gain valuable insights from diverse learning ecosystems.
