  • Degree: Philosophy
"Our department is small, but strong. Grad students and faculty are extremely collegial and available, and our placement record is quite competitive. Our comprehensive exams in the history of philosophy give us a broad background in areas of philosophy beyond our own, which helps with teaching and on the job market."

  • Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
"The program is relatively small. While this means less faculty, there is a more intimate feel to the program. Everyone seems very friendly. I got one-on-one advising with the program director before the start of the program. I feel welcome to ask questions at all times. While it is expensive to go to school here, the program is a semester shorter than most programs so we will be able to work much sooner. There is not much to do around Waco but this has simply allowed me to concentrate more on my studies."

"In my degree program, I have been given hands on experience working with children inside the Waco school district that has been able to give me a perspective I would not have dreamed of getting college. Since I am a Deaf Education major, I also get the opportunity to obtain my minor in ASL interpreting which opens up a lot of employment opportunities after graduation besides just teaching. In addition, having a year-long internship senior year will help build my resume and credibility by actually being inside the schools and having a guarantee of interacting with students."

"I loved my Baylor experience. The environment made me feel at home. The only negatives were the price of the education and not really being prepared for what comes next with a humanities degree."

"Great program with great professor. You must have decided if it is a right fit for you before applying for this degree. It's a touch degree to get, and useful for medical school."

"I've in the process of completing my graduate program and it is amazing. The Baylor program offers me everything I envisioned for a full-time MBA program. Plenty opportunities for hands on learning."

"Baylor offers unprecedented career development support and professors have an open door policy with office hours weekly to meet with you. They take a very hands on approach to making sure you learn the skills necessary to succeed."

"Baylor runs a smaller program with 25-35 members per class. You really get to know everyone in the program, as well as the professors. The professors are genuinely there to help everyone learn, and the program administrators are extremely helpful. So far, one of the best things about the program has been the networking. I'm in the healthcare focused eMBA, and have already had several practical benefits to networking within the class. I highly recommend Baylor's program."

"The pros of getting a MM at Baylor University are abundant. You get one-on-one faculty student time to hone your craft. It is a small program so you get a lot of attention and critique. The con is it is a small program. While this is also positive, a negative side is less competition and it is harder to find appropriate operas to perform."

  • Degree: Neuropsychology
"Baylor Psychology and Neuroscience is mainly psychology with only three labs that could be described as involved in neuroscience research. That aside those three labs do good research and my lab in particular is very active in publishing in peer reviewed journals. The workload for myself is very strenuous, but doable. Baylor is a great school that is unfortunately located in a city that doesn't really have the feel of a college town."

"Excellent faculty and excellent funding make Baylor a no-regrets choice for graduate work. I was stimulated mentally and socially to become a top-notch scholar and person - and the faculty didn't believe becoming either of those were optional. The program was rigorous and expectations were high, but the result was worth all the effort."

"Its a very great program with great professors who actually care about your success. They'd rather see you succeed than sink without a doubt. There is also little Intra-grad student and inter-lab competition, which means collaborations are possible and at times encouraged. This serves to offer a more cohesive cohort rather than a competitive one. Aka, there's a good amount of social support. The program is rather selective on who it brings in per year."

"Pros are that you get a degree quickly so you can get back into the workplace and pay off those loans. We also get a lot of hands on experiences and great direction in the areas we want to focus on. Baylor is a great campus and our professors genuinely care about our success and future. Cons is that it's a very intensive program so it means very little sleep and a ton of hard work (which coincidentally is a pro - because you know you did the work for it!!) The only other con I will mention is that our building is old and moldy and we are constantly neglected with funding for a more advanced classroom experience."
