After earning a B.A. in biology at the University of California at San Diego, Beck moved to Houston to work as a biochemist at the University of Texas Medical School in the Department of Biochemistry. For two years she enjoyed this scientific effort, but came to believe there was more she needed to do in the world than run experiments. In 1973, she entered a short-term missionary program of the Southern Baptist Convention. Beck served as a youth worker in Asia, and for two years she taught and ministered among the young people. She returned to America in 1975 where she worked with Southeast Asian refugees at the Southern Baptist Convention’s resettlement office in Fort Smith, Arkansas.


In January 1976, Beck entered Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, to work on a Master of Divinity degree. She majored in church history and received the first Robert A. Baker Church History Award for the outstanding student in that field. After graduation, Beck moved to Waco, Texas, to pursue a Ph.D. in religion at Baylor University. She received a graduate assistantship and then a teaching assistantship. Beck completed her degree in August 1984 and was asked to join the Baylor faculty beginning that fall. She was the first woman professor in the Baylor Department of Religion, now holds the rank of Associate Professor at the university, and is a member of the Graduate Faculty.
