Liberal Arts: 44 Hours

All majors at Harding are required to complete 53 hours of Liberal Arts  studies. The following Liberal Arts requirements are met within the content of the major:

  • EDFD 2030 , required in place of PSY 2010 , satisfies three hours of the Individual and Social Environment component and is counted below in the hours required for certification.
  • The 6-hour Global Perspectives requirement is satisfied by one year of modern foreign language, counted below in the major.

Additional Requirement:

Major: 40 Hours


Students seeking teaching licensure must follow eligibility criteria for admission and retention listed in the Cannon-Clary College of Education section of the undergraduate catalog.

Remaining Bible/Electives: 13 Hours

Bible is not required during the supervised teaching semester.

See Bible Enrollment Policy here.   

Total Hours: 128


Students are strongly advised to consider fulfilling a minor in their course of study. A minor, such as a modern foreign language, communication, or theatre complements the English major, and gives the student preparation to seek licensure in an additional area by adding the second area to the Praxis exam. These particular minors are useful since high school teachers of English are often expected to coach debate, to supervise student publications, or to produce plays. Students planning to teach at a Christian school might also consider a minor in Bible.
