SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 26, 2016) – For the first time, Baptist University of the Américas (BUA) has made College Choice’s Ranking.  College Choice is an independent online publication dedicated to helping students and their families find the right college. They publish rankings and reviews that make choosing the best college easier, as well as resources to help students get into, pay for, and thrive at the college of their choice.

We were honored to be included in such an elite group of higher education universities and colleges in Texas such as Rice University, Trinity University and U.T. in Austin (which were the top three).

College Choice described Baptist University of the Américas as “An interesting addition to this list. It is a private, Baptist university with a focus on cross-cultural studies at the undergraduate level. The school, which is located in San Antonio, Texas, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education.”

They continued to say, “Originally founded in 1947 as the Mexican Baptist Training School, this is one of the best colleges for Christian-minded students in the entire state. The school focuses primarily on Biblical studies throughout the Americas, ensuring that every student gets a faith-based education that will help them grow their service-oriented careers.”

Lastly, they shared, “This school chooses to also focus on cross-cultural issues, particularly those that influence and affect Hispanic cultures. That is why the theological education at the school is rounded out with a history of faith and culture throughout Latin and Central America. For Hispanics who wish to begin missionary work, there is no better school to attend than BUA.”

Dr. Moisés Rodríguez, the newly named Acting President interjected, “BUA’s faculty and curriculum continues to strive for excellence while our staff continues to facilitate our students’ campus life experience, from registration to graduation, with a servant-leadership spirit.”

Baptist University of the Américas, located at 7838 Barlite Blvd. in San Antonio, Texas, provides post-secondary education for students from all over the world. Students can earn certificates and college degrees not only to enter the formal ministry in churches but also to minister while serving in their service-oriented careers.  For more information click here.
