Founded in 1873, Shorter University is a Christ-centered, four-year liberal arts university committed to excellence in education. U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review annually include Shorter on their lists of best Southeastern Colleges. The university offers traditional bachelor’s degrees in 40 areas of study, as well as online associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs.
The Princeton Review rated Shorter as a “Best in the Southeast” University, and we have 50 majors in a wide variety of academic disciplines. Small classes provide for excellent student and faculty interaction. Our students are receiving a Christ centered education in business, education, psychology, Christian studies, fine arts, nursing, science, and a number of other areas.
Perhaps one of Shorter’s most important student resources is our student assistance services. Students have access to counseling, tutoring, career center, student support services, and much more at no cost.
