A pioneer in accelerated degree programs for adult learners.
More than 30 years ago, Baker University became a pioneer and regional leader in developing flexible, accelerated degree programs for working adults.
Today, our partnerships with area businesses and organizations ensure we continue to develop innovative educational programs that meet local workforce needs and the needs of our students.
Instructors at Baker University’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies are working professionals from diverse disciplines. As experts in their respective fields, they will share their experiences and knowledge with you while challenging you to reflect and critically examine the world in which you live.
Baker classes are held year-round, and new classes start frequently, so you can get started sooner rather than later.
A degree from Baker commands respect in the community—particularly in the Kansas City market. It signifies that you have met Baker’s rigorous standards and have acquired the knowledge and skills to excel in your career. Baker degree programs are flexible and allow you to earn your degree while continuing to live your life. By taking one online course at a time, you’ll dig deep into the material, really learn it, and use it immediately on the job. Courses are held online with opportunities for virtual meetings.
You have questions and we have answers.
From answering your first question about returning to school to finalizing enrollment in the degree program that will help you reach your professional goals, your enrollment recruiter is your partner every step of the way. And once you’re enrolled, your academic advisor will guide you through degree-completion planning and course scheduling and point you toward resources for success.
