Why a Ph.D. in Higher Education Leadership & Studies?

1. National reputation, and the resources to go with it

Baylor boasts a national reputation among research universities across America. Baylor students have access to the many resources that a leading research university offers.

2. Built on the foundation of a highly selective, reputable master's program

The Ph.D. program builds upon Baylor's highly competitive graduate program in Higher Education & Student Affairs.

3. Integration of faith and learning

Although faith and learning are commonly segregated today, it is faith that launched higher education in the United States. Drawing from a rich Christian heritage and mission, Baylor's Ph.D. in Higher Education emphasizes research and high quality graduate education through the integration of faith and learning.

4. Apprenticeships

Baylor's Ph.D. in Higher Education lists itself among the few that offer graduate apprenticeships that cover all of tuition and pay a competitive stipend. These apprenticeships offer students hands-on administrative and research practice outside of the classroom that complements the intellectual challenge inside the classroom.

5. Committed Faculty

The quality of a Ph.D. experience depends upon the quality of the faculty and their willingness to mentor future scholar-practitioners. Baylor's Higher Education faculty are diverse in their backgrounds and research expertise, but converge in their desire to mentor and develop the next generation of scholars and leaders of higher education.
