Director's Message

Wayland Baptist University (WBU) is a private four-year liberal arts university. The institution is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas and, as such, receives no state funding. WBU has had a presence in Wichita Falls since 1974, when our affiliation with the USAF was initiated at Sheppard AFB. Our original service to the military contingency at Sheppard was augmented when we began our Teacher Certification and Masters of Education programs. For more than 10 years we have also maintained a physical presence in the southwest quadrant of the city.

What an unprecedented opportunity you have at WBU-Wichita Falls. We continue to offer higher education degree programs in Wichita Falls in a non-traditional format for the working adult population. All our full-time faculty are terminally degreed and all our adjunct instructors must have a Master’s degree with experience in their field. WBU is a “forerunner” in external-degree programs and has been assisting members of all branches of service to accomplish their educational goals. We cater to “non-traditional” students who have family/job responsibilities with night and weekend classes. We utilize four 11-week terms per year to fit your specific needs.

We offer A.A.S., B.A.S., M.A., in a variety of fields as well as specific degrees like our M.B.A., M.P.A.,  M.A.C., MED and we now have available a Doctor of Management degree. All our degree programs are regionally accredited through SACS COC. We accept transfer hours from CCAF, and most regional and community colleges and CLEP/DANTES. Experiential learning may be evaluated and provide additional credits toward degree completion.

The Wayland Baptist University System is comprised of the Plainview campus, which is predominately a residential campus, twelve external campuses, and the Virtual Campus offering courses in a broad range of academic areas. We have received praise from national publications extolling our quality, cost and  relevance.
