By now you have probably heard that Hardin-Simmons University is adjusting their organizational structure and program offerings. This post will explain the restructuring of the current graduate and undergraduate programs within the CHSES at Hardin-Simmons University and the transitioning process into the next academic years. If you are graduating May 2020, you will not be affected by the following changes, your graduation will be in the College of Human Sciences and Educational Studies as planned.
Closure of graduate programs include the following:
Express Teacher Certification (ETC)
Closure of undergraduate programs include the following:
Please know any current students enrolled in any of these academic programs will complete the degree in a timely manner. There will be a “teach-out” for these programs.
We will no longer be a College of Human Sciences & Educational Studies. With the collapsing of the CHSES, the different departments/school within the CHSES, will be added to other HSU Colleges.
Here are the changes effective Fall 2020:
College of Health Professions
Fitness, Recreation & Sports Management

While change is a part of life, the quality of your career preparation remains the utmost importance to all the faculty members in your programs. We will continue to provide the same level of excellence in all aspects of your remaining time at HSU.
