The University ranks first among the 73 American doctoral granting private institutions in the total number of baccalaureate recipients who have earned doctorates in the professional fields; following Baylor are Harvard, Columbia, Brigham Young, Cornell, Northwestern, New York University, Syracuse, Stanford, and the University of Pennsylvania. Baylor is also one of the oldest coeducational universities in the United States and one of eleven Phi Beta Kappa universities in Texas.
Center faculty within the physics and mathematics departments, the School of Business, the School of Engineering, the School of Education and CASPER itself provide students the opportunity to pursue the Doctor of Philosophy degree, the EdD and both thesis and non-thesis master's of science and master's of arts degrees in a variety of disciplines. Information concerning most aspects of the application process can be found at the Graduate School website.
Graduate students are admitted semi-annually on a competitive basis. Since applicants are automatically considered for both admission and financial aid, it is recommended that applications be submitted (at the absolute latest!) to the Graduate School at Baylor by February 1st of the year in which the applicant seeks admission. In addition to departmental TA / RA positions, the Center has limited funding available for outstanding graduate students interested in any of its areas of research. TexSpace Fellowships and Scholarships as well as Graduate Research Assistantships are also available for outstanding applicants. Information concerning financial aid in the form of Teaching Assistantships, Research Assistantships or CASPER Fellowships can be obtained by contacting Truell Hyde.
