It is always a pleasure to assist prospective students as they make plans to select a university that will prepare them for their chosen profession. I always look forward to the opportunity to interact with students and explore their career options.

    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.
