Students at Wayland

School of Math and Science

Mission Statement:

The School of Mathematics and Sciences emphasizes a rigorous, ethical approach to the study of mathematics and science.  We believe that success in these disciplines requires a broad base of content knowledge and the development of the critical thinking skills necessary for the ongoing acquisition, processing and communication of current subject matter.  The activities of the School, both academic and professional, intentionally reflect the Lordship of Jesus Christ and His centrality to all of creation.

Welcome to the School of Math and Sciences.

Wayland's School of Mathematics and Sciences prepares students for a variety of careers or graduate study by teaching fundamental concepts, real world applications, research skills and analytical thinking skills to develop the individual student.  It is our goal to provide quality academic content in a Christian environment.  Far from believing that the worlds of faith and science are completely unrelated, or necessarily in conflict, we feel that our faith and the pursuit of a scientific understanding of the world around us strengthen and complement one another.  This relationship is not always a simple one, nor is it always comfortable, but if you are looking for a place to study science or mathematics in the light of God’s Word, Wayland Baptist University may be just the place for you.

What's Happening This Week:

TAS student chapter is doing a “Birdathon” fundraiser this fall to raise money for our conservation and meeting activities this year. The fundraiser is modeled after similar ones with bird conservation NGOs, where the organizers do a 24-hour Birdathon, attempting to identify as many species of birds as possible in the region in a 24-hour window of time. Pledges are solicited per species ahead of time as donations to our organization.  Drs. Niler Pyeatt and Kasner will lead the Birdathon on Oct. 16th and record the species we see, and then they all will follow up with the pledges to gather the funds. The goal for the Birdathon is 100 species. Thus, a pledge of 50 cents/species would generate a $50 donation.  If you are able/willing to make a pledge, your support would be appreciated. If you are interested than please contact Dr. Andy Kasner,, or 806-291-1117. Pledges (not the actual money) is due by Oct. 15th.

MAA will be attending the Texas Undergraduate Mathematics Conference at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, TX from Oct. 17-19. Students will be participating in math games, talks, and networking with other math undergraduate students from Texas universities.


We offer programs in biological sciences, chemistry, environmental sciencesgeology, mathematics, molecular biology, as well as related pre-professional studies. We offer two degrees, BA and BS ,within these programs.

Faculty and Staff      

It is the relationship between our students and our faculty that is at the heart of the success of our program.  The faculty in our School are individuals with a rare combination of professional and academic expertise coupled with a dedication to our students and a genuine love of God.  Our classes are taught by our faculty, not graduate assistants, and our students have the opportunity to work directly with our faculty on a variety of research projects.  The ability to get one-on-one assistance from the professor during office hours can make a huge difference in an academically challenging class.

Our students not only receive outstanding classroom instruction, but also forge lasting relationships with faculty mentors that extend outside the classroom and continue beyond graduation.  The proof of our success is the success of our alumni.  They can be found in many different places, doing many different things, and we could not be more proud of what they have accomplished. 

Please browse through our website.  You will learn more about who we are and how we do things.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of us.  You will find our contact information on the menu bar to the left.

Dr. Herb Grover is the Dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences.
