Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences, the largest college at Shorter University. I am honored that you are seeking more information about us!
Shorter University was founded in 1873 as a liberal arts institution, and the College of Arts & Sciences takes that vision to heart. The General Education core is housed primarily in our college, as we help prepare students for the rigor of their chosen majors. In addition, the College of Arts & Sciences is home to over 25 different degrees.
Examples of majors include Biology, Chemistry, Christian Studies, Communication Arts, Criminal Justice, Ecology and Field Biology, English, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Liberal Arts, Mathematics, Natural Science, Political Science, Psychology, Spanish, and Youth Ministry.
The prestigious Alpha Chi National Honor Society — a Star Chapter four years running — is also housed in the College of Arts & Sciences. The honor society is open to only the top 10% of Juniors and Seniors academically. Membership is by invitation, and the university has enjoyed national recognition with several convention and scholarship winners in the past few years.
Moreover, the Shorter Honors Academy is a part of the College of Arts & Sciences. The Shorter Honors Academy offers a challenging environment for talented and intellectually gifted students who seek an enhanced education. The aim of the academy is to challenge students to cultivate strong habits of critical thinking and creativity in a community of scholars, no matter what their major.
Academically, our students compete on a national stage—and we are proud to be the sponsoring college for many of their achievements. The mission of the College of Arts & Sciences is to foster a supportive Christ-centered learning environment that will help students grow and flourish spiritually and academically.
The College of Arts & Sciences hope that you will be intrigued by our success and visit us on the Hill today, so we can support you along your path of life-long learning and service.
Come for a visit, meet some professors, and talk to our students. You will see for yourself that this is the place to be!
We look forward to the possibilities!
