Shorter College subscribes to the philosophy that no one should be considered an educated person unless he or she is acquainted with at least the fundamentals of those academic disciplines known as the liberal arts, which include languages, literature, philosophy, mathematics, social studies, the arts, and the abstract sciences. Such studies contribute to the general development of human potentials and constitute a foundation for a student’s future academic and vocational or professional specialization. Shorter’s General Education Program is designed to provide an opportunity for students to acquire an education in the liberal arts through its foundational core courses offered in the Associate of Arts degree programs.
