About Us

Our Religion Department provides the context for a flourishing Ph.D. program with concentrations offered in the Old Testament, New Testament, Historical, and Theological Areas.

Faculty are committed to a strong research agenda, and that agenda is tied to the Baylor tradition of providing the very finest in classroom instruction. Baylor continues to move toward its goal of becoming a top tier university and the department along with the university remains friendly to faith and to church, thus providing a distinctive setting in American higher education.

Most graduates of the Ph.D. program in Religion begin an academic career in a liberal arts context. Accordingly, our curriculum requires work in various areas within the discipline of Religion. Students may also take advantage of the university context by working in an area outside the department.
