is without reservation that I commend the HSU faculty to you. Each full time
professor has earned impressive academic credentials and experiential knowledge
that enhance his/her instructional effectiveness. Our faculty members are
Christians who actively practice and demonstrate their faith daily. The goals
of the faculty are to help students achieve their professional goals and
nurture their spiritual life, within the context of a Christian community of
learners. Our faculty members provide accurate academic advisement, are
accessible and approachable. They take a personal interest in our students and
strive to challenge, provide timely guidance, and address critical issues in
the fields of Human Sciences and Educational Studies. Our faculty provide a
caring and supportive learning environment focused on the development of
professional skills and knowledge.
The College of Human Sciences and Educational Studies offers
a wide range of programming at the Undergraduate, Masters and Doctoral level.
Many of the programs are nationally accredited. Programs include the following
areas: Human Services Administration, Early Childhood, Counseling and Human
Development, Athletic Training, Education, Exercise Science, and Fitness,
Recreation and Sports Management. Each program conducts and annual assessment.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) also reviews our Educator Preparation Program
yearly with a review of test scores and other accountability requirements. The
departments also review other external accountability requirements such as
state credentialing examinations, employee evaluations completed by the
graduates themselves near the end of their initial year of employment. All of
these measures provide annual feedback for assurance of quality programming.
I hope you will prayerfully consider HSU for your university
experience. At Hardin-Simmons University, you will find a culture of care,
support, and community. We value our relationships with our students and strive
to empower our students to achieve success in their personal and professional
lives. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our offices
