The faculty and staff at Northwest Arkansas would love the opportunity to talk to you about continuing your education or about renting our building. As part of the Harding University College of Education, we offer a Degree Completion program for students wanting to become teachers, and we offer a Masters in Teaching program that leads to licensure for individuals with a Bachelors Degree in an area outside of education who want to become teachers. We also offer Graduate programs for educators wanting to further their education. A complete list of degree programs and programs of study that we offer in the field of education and counseling are provided in the programs section below. All programs leading to licensure have been approved by the Arkansas Department of Education and by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Additionally, we rent rooms in our building to businesses and organizations on a daily basis.
If you are a prospective student or are interested in renting our rooms, we invite you to come visit our campus, see our facilities, and meet our faculty and staff. We would love the opportunity to talk to you about how one of our programs would equip you to be a life-long learner who inspires and serves others or how our building would fit your needs.
