Baker University builds achievers, doers, and global citizens, ready to tackle the world. Our students can say it best:
MICHAELA | History & Communication Double Major, Class of 2017
“Everything fell into place when I became involved at Baker—I found my niche. I know everyone says it, but it’s so true that there really is a place for everyone here. I love everything I do because I get to influence people’s experience at Baker and help them love it as much as I have learned to. I get to see the direct results of my hard work and see how it affects the students around me.”
EDDIE | Class of 1989
—Associate Manager, Engineering Project Management & Integration Office, NASA
KATIE | Sociology Major, Class of 2011
PATTI | Class of 1988
—CEO, National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators
JIM | Mass Media Major, Class of 2017
JESSE | Communications Major & Theatre Minor, Class of 2016
DANTE | Music Education Major, Class of 2017
“When I first visited, everyone on campus would say hi to me and it was so friendly. It was the community that brought me here, and that includes the music faculty. They really do a lot to try and prepare you for life after graduation because they generally care so much about every student. They work hard to make me the best musician I can be.”
AMANDA | Business & Accounting Double Major, Class of 2018
“What I love most about Baker are the small class sizes and how, no matter what, I can always approach my professors. And also how easy it is to get involved but still be able to be academically pushed. Baker is definitely where I’m supposed to be.”
LUKE | Class of 2017
“Someday, I’ll tell my children about how Baker has given me the world and a place I will always call home. Baker is 158 years old, and here’s to 158 more years worth of lives changed and memories made.”
MEGAN | Business & Economics Double Major, Class of 2016
“My favorite part of Baker is the relationships formed here. I can hold a conversation with just about anyone I see on campus, even if I’ve only met them once. The professors genuinely care about me as a person and continue to show that long after the classes I took from them are over. This is especially true of my adviser, as I often sit in his office for an hour at a time, discussing things not even remotely related to Baker or my studies.”
Baker University offers master’s and doctoral degree programs at its regional campuses throughout the Kansas City metro, Topeka, and Wichita and online. Since the early 1990s, Baker’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies has introduced to its community workforce-relevant programs that are known for their value. The School of Education is home to an impressive roster of faculty members with decades of real-world classroom and administrative experience.
Baker University School of Nursing offers both bachelor’s and master’s programs. Our nurses, nursing educators, and nursing administrators are compassionate, dedicated, and confident professionals who have a tremendous impact on the communities in which they serve. Baker builds its nurses at its partner hospital, Stormont Vail Health, in Topeka, Kansas. Although it’s not mandatory, Baker’s School of Nursing encourages prospective students to take their prerequisite courses at the College of Arts and Sciences in Baldwin City—that way, students can enjoy two years of the traditional residential campus experience. Our online Master of Science in Nursing program offers two tracks—nursing education and nursing administration—to prepare graduates to shape the next generation of health care professionals.
Getting an education is always hard work, but Baker University is dedicated to making that process as easy as possible for our students. Online courses offer the flexibility to engage in course work whenever and wherever it’s convenient. We offer both individual online courses and degrees earned entirely online—from your home, from your favorite coffee shop, wherever. Take your education with you wherever you go.
Baker University is proud to have developed degree programs for students who are not interested in attending the traditional residential campus in Baldwin City. Our professional programs and continuing education programs at the School of Professional and Graduate Studies and the School of Education are known for fitting the needs of modern students in all stages of life.
