Harding University


Harding began as a senior college in 1924, when two junior colleges, Arkansas Christian College and Harper College, merged their facilities and assets, adopted the new name of Harding College, and located on the campus of Arkansas Christian in Morrilton, Ark. In 1934 Harding was moved to its present site in Searcy, Ark. 


It is composed of the following academic units: a College of Allied Health, a College of Arts and Humanities, a College of Bible and Ministry, a College of Business Administration, a College of Education, a College of Nursing, a College of Pharmacy, a College of Sciences, and a School of Theology, through which over 100 undergraduate majors as well as graduate and professional programs in athletic training, business, education, mental health and wellness, ministry, nursing, pharmacy, physician assistant studies, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, and theology are offered.
