Our Mission

The College of Arts & Humanities has been part of the Harding story since the beginning in 1924. We continue the same mission today of training, nurturing and graduating students who are agile, decisive thinkers skilled in evaluation, reflection and problem-solving. At the heart of the University, we embrace both the mission of Harding and its traditions. Each of our students is exposed to the skills and dispositions that spark creative expression.

We are the Humanities

We animate innermost thoughts and bring the impossible to life. We connect the world with the individual and declare who we are or might become. We explore cultures through stories and song and express through many native tongues. We illustrate ideas and concepts. We intone thoughts. We recount noble adventures and far-fetched dreams. We spark notions and visions and write the text of life, and we give voice to the heart. We are the humanities.

Training Decisive Thinkers

Our graduates are prepared to continue their studies in graduate schools or enter into any one of more than a thousand professions in today's workforce.

Our students are ready to pursue careers that have yet to be created.

Establishing a Foundation

Students from disciplines across our university are establishing a foundation and understanding of human feelings and emotions expressed through our media and communication, history and society, native and foreign languages, and our visual and aural expressions.
