CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS

Dallas Baptist University offers undergraduate certificates in multiple fields of study.

ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS

Dallas Baptist University offers seven two-year associate degree programs: Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts (Teacher Preparation), Associate of Biblical Studies, Associate of Business Administration, Associate of Christian Studies, Associate of Interdisciplinary Studies, and Associate of Science. These programs are designed to provide a strong foundation in the liberal arts or business and prepare students for future academic success if that is their desire. The associate degree also aids those who may need to enter the business world more quickly than a four-year degree program would allow.
