Why HBU?

Houston Baptist University is proud to offer students a higher education. By incorporating faith, reason, and the liberal arts into our curriculum, we seek to provide both undergraduate and graduate students with an education that isn’t based solely on preparation for a future career, but is founded on the teachings of Christ. What we provide is an education that provides our students with the tools they need to be compassionate and strong leaders, both in their careers and in their communities. We ultimately strive to send our students out into the world with a better understanding of how to live a fulfilling, accomplished, and righteous life.
