Outstanding Faculty

Baylor’s Graduate Faculty in History is a uniquely distinctive community of scholars specializing in religious history. We understand the significant role played by faculty and especially the advisor in professional academic training. We engage students as junior colleagues, teaching students to follow in the Baylor tradition of excellent teaching and preparing students for success in research, writing, and publishing (academic as well as for the more general public). Faculty excellence in scholarship combined with our serious commitment to faith prepares students for successful careers in teaching, publishing, and academic engagement with the modern church.
