Why did you choose Baylor's MSW Program?
  • I came to visit the school of social work as a Senior in high school. I met Dr. Singletary and other staff members that made me feel at home. Baylor’s unique way focus on integration of faith and practice was also extremely appealing to me. The academic rigorous and caring environment that Baylor fosters led me to want to pursue both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
