Academics at HSU

A diploma – most high school students think it’s the ultimate goal of attending college. And, they’re not wrong – if you start college but don’t finish with a degree, you’ll be disappointed. However, a diploma is only a representation of something far more important. A college degree tells the world that you achieved knowledge … that you learned what you needed to learn.

Your degree from Hardin-Simmons will represent to the world a rigorous, useful, and modern academic education, as well as the personal and spiritual development we provide our students. When you become part of the HSU family, we’re committed to loving you, embracing you, and, of course, educating you.

When you hang your diploma, you’ll know the Hardin-Simmons University seal represents a true higher education – years of studying, questioning, learning, and expanding your knowledge. And, you’ll know you are a part of the HSU family forever.
