University College

Academic Advising

The purpose of the University College is to promote the success of all students by providing comprehensive programs and services, which advance academic achievement and personal development, helping students find their place at Harding.

Programs


B.A. or B.S. in integrative studies: This major empowers students to create a degree plan that best suits their interests and enhances their career objectives. Students may choose two or more areas of concentration within a framework designed to prepare students to integrate various approaches to problem solving according to their specific professional and academic goals. This degree will prepare students to enter the job market or pursue graduate education.

Exploratory studies program: Students who begin their college career unsure about their major or career path have the opportunity to look into the University’s more than 100 areas of study through this program. They will be able to complete general education courses that will lead into a major of their choice while creating and maintaining a graduation plan. Students must select a major once they reach degree evaluation status, which occurs after completing between 45 and 60 credit hours.
