Psychology & Human Services – Shorter University

We make Researcher-Pracitioners.

Students learn both research skills and therapeutic techniques for working with clients. Our psychology faculty members strongly believe that those in the helping professions must be able to understand and contribute to professional research in order to offer their clients the best and most current interventions.
