Baptist University of the Américas named “most affordable” Bible college in Texas


Baptist University of the Américas (BUA) ranks #1 in Texas and among the top 20 most affordable Bible colleges in the United States and Canada, according to a survey of 1,200 colleges and universities conducted by the Association for Biblical Higher Education.

The survey determined the top 50 institutions that offer Bible-based, Christian education. The schools were selected due to their outstanding ministry programs, high-quality academics, generous financial aid, and the focus on Christian culture and academics.

“BUA serves students from a variety of countries who desire an education that prepares them as Christian leaders, both in church-related and secular careers, ” said BUA President René Maciel. “Most of our students need financial assistance to attend, so we rely on private donations, federal financial aid, and support from Texas Baptists in the Baptist General Convention of Texas to provide funding for them.”

BUA offers bachelor’s degrees in Business Leadership, Biblical & Theological Studies, Human Behavior, Music, and Spanish Language and Literature, and an associate degree in Cross-Cultural Studies.

The next highest Texas school ranked 22nd.
