East Texas Baptist University offers over 40 majors of study in seven schools.  The seven schools are School of Business, School of Christian Studies, School of Education, School of Humanities, School of Fine Arts, School of Natural and Social Sciences and School of Nursing.  ETBU, in its second century of offering Christ-centered higher education,  also offers graduate programs in Business, Religion, Education and Counseling.

Another fact, 90% of the faculty is terminal. What does that mean?

A terminal degree is the highest academic degree in a given field of study.  Of the professors teaching at ETBU, 90% have earned the highest degree in their field. Students who sit in their classrooms are getting top notch instruction.  It does not surprise me when ETBU professors are asked to speak locally or internationally on a topic in their field of study.

Recently, ETBU Professor of Political Science Dr. Israel Nandamudi,  was invited by his alma mater, Andhra University in India to be the key note speaker at the International Conference on Gender Mainstreaming: Issues and Strategies for Empowerment.  To read about his trip to the conference, click here.

Then on Monday, April 7, ETBU Professor of Religion Dr. Jeph Holloway will be at Carson-Newman University in Jefferson City, Tenn. He is has been invited to speak at the T.B. Maston Lecture in Christian Ethics.  His lecture will focus on the importance of how the moral life God intends for us is thoroughly bound to our identity as people of worship.”
