One-week intensive courses
Full-credit classes with one week in-person and additional work from home all semester.
Top-notch education from experts in their fields. When I started without much undergrad work in Bible or ministry, I worried about whether or not I was in the right place, but the administration, faculty, and staff were supportive. When I transitioned from a distance student to living on-campus, they made everything a breeze, and the community on-campus was fantastic and supportive beyond belief. The library facilities are the best for Biblical Studies, likely anywhere between Harvard and the Mississippi if not the West Coast. HST prepared me for ministry and a life of service and scholarship.

I earned my M.Div. @ HST many years ago and was well-equipped to serve in ministry. The faculty are top-notch academics who also have real-world ministry experience. There is great community on campus. The library is fabulous. Highly recommended. Loved it so much, I came back to work for the school.
This is one of the best, most extensive libraries in the country for theology and religious books. Anyone can get a card and rent a book; you do not have to be a student. The staff is so friendly and kind. It is a gem in our city, and not enough people are aware that it is open to all.
I graduated from HST with my MA in Counseling today. My time there was well worth it and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am especially thankful for all of the personal growth that inevitable comes along with doing a degree in the Counseling field. I highly recommend this program!
I have had a wonderful experience at HST. The faculty are experts in their field of study, sincere in their faith, and personal with their students. The library is truly a treasure. The staff are helpful and kind. The students come from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, which adds to the depth of discussion and learning. The M. Div. program has helped my ministry tremendously, and I will be forever indebted to this school.
I loved my experience at HST. I was able to work in full time ministry the whole time I was slowly chipping away at my M. Div. I can't say enough good things about the staff and faculty and how my life was shaped by these fine brothers and sisters. So many of them bent over backwards in assisting me in my studies and ministry. The friendships and connections with my fellow students, alumni, faculty and staff continue to be huge influencers in my life and ministry. The education was top notch! Very challenging! I loved it!
Harding School of Theology is a first class educational experience. The school provides cutting edge training that translates well to effective leadership within a congregation. The professors are personally engaged in your well being and development, through mentoring and coaching. The school is not a degree factory, rather the school is dedicated to creating strong disciples of the Lord that produce strong leaders in the world and church. After 5 years of quality training, I can look back and see the difference the school made on my ministry.
I attended HST as a distance student, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not only was the course content challenging and helpful, each faculty member was concerned with ministry, and I have been blessed by continued friendships with them after graduation.
Incredible staff, incredible students, incredible school! HST has gone above and beyond to create a positive, spiritual, and safe environment to learn. I am in the process of getting my Masters in Counseling and after only one year in the program I am so grateful for the personal enrichment that I have received through my time at HST. I am confident that my education here will fully prepare me for my future career in counseling.
