Ouachita Baptist University - Bachelor's Degree
Ouachita Baptist University, founded in 1886, started out with 235 students but expanded quickly. Within the next few years, the University saw the construction of a number of buildings; by 1907, its faculty expanded from six to 26, enrollment doubled to 476 and the graduating class increased to 34. In 1965, the Board of Trustees voted to change the institution’s name to Ouachita Baptist University and a year later, Ouachita introduced a revised and expanded curriculum, in addition to introducing a graduate program.
In 1998, Ouachita’s core curriculum was reviewed and revised and the University was reorganised into eight schools, the Frank D. Hickingbotham School of Business, the Chesley and Elizabeth Pruet School of Christian Studies, the Michael D. Huckabee School of Education, the School of Fine Arts, the School of Humanities, the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, the J D Patterson School of Natural Sciences and the W H Sutton School of Social Sciences.
Today Ouachita has grown into a leading liberal arts university with more than 1,500 students from 30 states and 30 nations.
