About WBU

Centrally located in the United States, the main campus of WBU in Plainview, Texas, administers multiple programs of associate, baccalaureate and master level degrees offered at more than a dozen campuses. Near the turn of the millennium, Wayland began offering courses online to supplement the physical campus programs. In 2001, the Virtual Campus was developed to administer all the online courses. Starting with the Winter of 2006, Wayland began offering graduate degree programs entirely online.

Wayland Baptist University exists to educate students in an academically challenging, learning-focused, and distinctively Christian environment for professional success and service to God and humankind.
