Howard Payne University
- Education & Training
Howard Payne University is a Christ-centered, close-knit academic community located in the heart of Texas since 1889.
HPU remains dedicated to honoring Christ and serving His Church by providing an educational experience that integrates faith, learning and living. The university offers a wide array of undergraduate programs and a limited number of graduate programs, offered in a traditional residential academic community where relationships are nurtured and individuals matter. Students, faculty, staff and administration work together under the shared values of academic excellence, service to others and Christian integrity. The Guy D. Newman Honors Academy challenges students with a multidisciplinary curriculum and exciting travel opportunities. The university also offers selected graduate and undergraduate coursework by electronic means and at extended learning centers in El Paso and New Braunfels. HPU maintains a low student-teacher ratio, which contributes to the university's reputation of being ''a place where everybody is somebody.''
