Learning that inspires and also sets you up At Emory we pair traditional learning—liberal arts—with discovery. So you’ll use questions, evidence, and experience as you learn. You’ll graduate with knowledge, yes, but also skills to make your impact.

A customized academic path Take our list of 70+ majors and 50+ minors and create an education that fits you. After your first two years, if you’re interested in business or nursing, you can apply to Emory’s Goizueta Business School to earn a BBA or transfer to our School of Nursing to earn a BSN.

Through study abroad in Berlin, challenging classes, and regular discussions with political science professor Merle Black, Tyler has fine-tuned his learning. And, he discovered that pairing his political science major with economics was valuable, informing his understanding of politics. “These experiences helped to broaden my view of politics and have helped me to realize the different paths there are to take when I graduate.”

REAL -LIFE LEARNING is calling your name Emory graduates creative thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders. So you’ll be prepared for today’s world. Great classes from day one At Emory, learning is enriched by the resources and faculty of a top research university, and it begins with our First-Year Seminars. They’re small (most less than 20 students) and interdisciplinary, and their topics connect to the world around you.
Professors who will know what makes you tick Our average class size is 24, and 80% of classes have fewer than 30 students. The student-faculty ratio is 8:1. And, our professors will advise you from your freshman year on.
Gain skills as well as knowledge Our Nature of Evidence curriculum will train you to use evidence as you learn—regardless of major—leading to fine-tuned observational and reasoning skills. Analyze in-the-news issues in our University Courses, which draw upon the many perspectives and resources across campus and are open to all students—undergraduate and graduate. Experiential learning like internships, study abroad, leadership training, and research offer practical experience to enhance your knowledge toolkit.
PROFESSORS who make the hair stand up on the back of your neck At Emory, our professors—the ones who write the books, run the labs, and make discoveries—teach. They also advise students, cheer at games, and eat in the DUC with everyone else. They’ll teach you things that will surprise and inspire you, and you’ll connect with them for a lifetime. And, you just might find former US President Jimmy Carter or His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama leading your class.
