Baylor University Online: Leadership and Service Preparation

Grounded in Baylor University’s 175-year history of academic excellence, our online offerings are an extension of the University mission: to educate the whole student for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment in a caring community.

Baylor has been offering graduate degrees online since 2018, and our online learning platform exhibits the latest advances, proven methods, and best practices in the way students learn remotely. Our EdD, MPH, MSW, and CSD online programs provide a blend of collaborative online tools, real-world experience, and personalized support.

As the higher education landscape evolves, Baylor continues to remain a leader in the transformation of students into service-oriented leaders in both traditional and online learning environments.
