Harding University North Little Rock

Harding University North Little Rock is located in the heart of central Arkansas (located just behind McCain Mall). As part of the University’s Cannon-Clary College of Education, HUNLR is designed to help non-traditional undergraduate students complete a degree in education and help educators and administrators take the next step in their career through master’s, specialist and doctoral degrees. Master’s courses in professional counseling and clinical counseling are also offered.

HUNLR courses offer convenience and flexibility through a hybrid format - an online/on-ground combination. On-ground courses may be taken at the North Little Rock location (rather than driving to Searcy) and online courses may be taken anywhere, anytime - day or night. These options uniquely meet the needs of students and professionals.

HUNLR faculty and staff are committed to preparing and supporting educators and counselors across the state and the nation. Harding professors want to partner with students not only for the duration of their degree plan but also for life. At Harding, we are a community of mission — let us help you find your calling.

We invite you to visit our facility in North Little Rock and take the next step toward your future.
