Bachelor of Arts in Humanities

The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities at Texas Baptist College offers education for life—that is, for living the truly human life; the life of virtue, of purpose, and of properly ordered desires and longings made possible by Jesus (John 10:10). This degree embarks on an exploration of worldview questions and ideas of the classical and Christian liberal arts tradition aimed at shaping students into persons who flourish in whichever vocational context to which they may be called.
