You Have Two Choices at Emory
As we hope you've found over the course of your college search, success in college is largely grounded in fit. Where you feel supported, challenged, and empowered is where you will do your best learning. Our firm belief in this ideal is why we offer applicants the choice between two different undergraduate experiences at two distinct campuses: Emory College, in Atlanta, GA, and Oxford College in Oxford, GA.
Emory College is a true fit for a student who values academic independence and intellectual engagement. Emory students benefit from having the resources of a dynamic research institution in the city of Atlanta, enhancing their academics and life outside class and providing easy access to hands-on industry access and internship opportunities. Classes are taught by professors who are the leading scholars in their fields, and learning is enriched by a student body that comes to Emory from all around the globe. Students choose from 71 majors, 57 minors, and a variety of preprofessional opportunities, with most students pursuing multiple disciplines of study.
Oxford College is ideal for a student who seeks a small liberal arts college experience and early opportunities for leadership. Distinctive features of Oxford’s intimate academic environment include its faculty—professors who are committed to excellent teaching—and its tight-knit and diverse community. Oxford students benefit from smaller classes, personal interaction between students and professors, and extensive opportunities to get involved, all of which lay the foundation for the specialized work they do when they continue as juniors at Emory's Atlanta campus.
Both colleges will train you to make creative decisions, approach problems from different perspectives, and think compassionately. You’ll gain a solid foundation in the Liberal Arts, which, though it sounds abstract, actually provides a strong launching point for every career. In the video above, our alumni will discuss how the Emory undergraduate experience has helped them succeed and our current faculty and students will talk about mixing practice and theory in the classroom.
