Residential College

The Residential College is open to all students enrolled in an Honors College academic program. Admission is by special application only.


The Baylor Interdisciplinary Core (BIC) is one of the programs in the Honors College at Baylor University. It provides an alternative way for students to explore Baylor's core curriculum. Instead of taking the University's traditional general education requirements (separate classes in English, history, religion, philosophy, and political science, for example) BIC students learn about these subjects by taking a challenging and integrated curriculum.

The BIC curriculum explores the interrelation of humanities, social sciences, and the physical sciences and thereby provides students with a broad context in which they can better understand the contemporary world. BIC students gain exposure to literature and thought from around the world to receive a global education.


BIC Facts:

  • A maximum of 200 students are accepted each fall;
  • BIC classes are team-taught by professors across the University;
  • The BIC is compatible with all other Honors College programs and with most majors at Baylor.
