Masters Programs within the School of Education

The master’s programs offered by the School of Education at Houston Baptist University are designed to develop teachers and instructional designers, as well as leaders in school administration and in special services necessary to the successful operation of schools in Texas.  A number of these master’s programs also provide students with the opportunity to earn an associated professional certificate.

Houston Baptist University’s School of Education offers three different tracks for master’s programs. One track provides certification as a teacher in a variety of settings. The second track provides additional certification for those who are already teachers and who want to further their careers. The third track provides professional growth but no additional certification.  Students may select from several admission options. Financial aid is also available for graduate study.

Online Options

HBU is proud to offer these four master’s programs completely online:

The courses offered in our online programs offer the same high-quality instruction as in our face-to-face classes. However, online courses provide flexibility for those students seeking a graduate degree, but who have schedules which limit their ability to take courses on the HBU campus. Students can complete the entire program without coming to the HBU campus.
