College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Shorter University was founded in 1873 as a liberal arts institution, and the College of Humanities and Social 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 Humanities and Social Sciences is home to numerous different degrees with diverse majors.
