Houston Baptist College was created by action of the Baptist General Convention of Texas on November 15, 1960. The College opened in September 1963 with a freshman class of 193 students, a cluster of new buildings, and a teaching staff of thirty faculty. Initially, the College offered only a Bachelor of Arts degree with academic courses in five subjects: Christianity, Fine Arts, Languages, Science and Mathematics, and Social Studies.
