Developing Servant Leaders. Transforming Lives.

We know you have choices when it comes to attending college. In state. Out of state. Private or public. When it comes to earning a degree, you could do that almost anywhere. But college should be about more than earning a degree. It is a transforming time to discover and prepare for the calling God has on your life. 

At Dallas Baptist University, our calling is to help you discover what you are uniquely placed on earth to do and then equip you to do it with excellence. 

A university of distinction
While earning a first-class, Christ-centered education that integrates faith and learning, you have unmatched opportunities to develop as a leader who follows Christ’s example to impact the world through serving others. 

DBU students have numerous opportunities to apply what they learn through service. You can study abroad—and take advantage of service-abroad programs—as an integral part of the DBU academic experience. Closer to home on DBU’s beautiful gated community in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, our students participate in internships and service-learning experiences at churches, corporations, and nonprofit organizations; service-focused student organizations and clubs; Christian sororities and fraternities; and varsity athletic programs and club sports. 

The DBU difference 
Students are free to explore their faith in the classroom and make genuine and practical connections to life, without compromising their Christian world-view. Expert professors, not graduate assistants, teach all our courses and take seriously their responsibilities for mentoring, advising, and challenging each student throughout their college experience and beyond.

A colonial-style campus—deep in the heart of Texas 
DBU understands the crucial role a campus plays in the development of one’s college experience and created an environment that highlights the beauty of God’s creation. From gorgeous ponds and peaceful gardens to bustling hangouts, from colonial-inspired buildings to cutting-edge classrooms, students discover a world of possibilities within a close-knit community—all against the backdrop of one of the largest cultural and economic centers in the nation.
