Emory began when it was founded on the Oxford College campus more than 175 years ago. It’s where a small liberal arts college shaped a generation of leaders before moving to Atlanta and becoming a full-fledged university. It’s where you’ll take your place among them. And where you’ll make your own history. Excellence in teaching Our committed professors encourage students to think for themselves and to work toward the kind of transformative intellectual breakthroughs that signal real education.
Leadership and teamwork Roll up your sleeves and jump right in. Oxford students begin as leaders from their very first moments on campus. It’s part and parcel of what makes us tick.
Innovative liberal arts curriculum Ways of Inquiry and Theory Practice/Service Learning classes teach students a higher-level understanding of academic disciplines and their application to the real world.

DETOUR TOWARD the unexpected There’s more than one way to learn Who’s to say that you can’t have fun, make great friends with your classmates—and professors—and still learn at the same time? At Oxford, you can. That’s because our community values closeness and friendliness as well as the serious pursuit of knowledge. Classes are small (86% have fewer than 30 students) and teaching is exemplary. You won’t find garden-variety here.
Resist the ordinary Teachers and students are collaborators in learning at Oxford. Courses that prompt students to think differently or act differently—doing rather than passively listening— are the norm. Students find professors easy to approach. As a result, class discussions are thoughtful. Students jump right into learning—readily connecting with professors and classmates, engaging with the readings and classwork, and speaking up in class.

study a subject in greater depth. Working one-on-one with a faculty member, the program provides students with a distinctive capstone to their Oxford experience. Honors Seminars are interdisciplinary and vary each year. Some examples: • What Makes Us Happy? • Writing the Disaster: Witnessing, 1945 • Utopias and Dystopias • Indigenous Cultures, Human Rights, and the Environment
JENNA CARIKER Nursing major; Music minor O’Fallon, Illinois Jenna finds English classes “typically painful,” but Brad Hawley, her favorite Oxford professor, teaches the subject. “Dr. Hawley explains writing in both a creative and formulaic way, which is really helpful for scientific thinkers like me,” she says. She likes the way he incorporates graphic novels into his curriculum along with classic texts. In Music Cultures of the World, an INQ class, Jenna and her classmates looked beyond textbooks to conduct their own ethnomusicological research in their hometowns, families, and the local community. “I’ve learned so much about the different music cultures that my fellow students are passionate about, and I think that’s pretty cool!”

REAL-WORLD KNOWLEDGE Get your hands dirty Through inquiry-guided (INQ) and theory practice/service learning (TPSL) courses, Oxford faculty engage in more interactive types of teaching. These courses give students the fundamental concepts and principles of subjects but move into the realm of real-world discovery through research or work in community settings.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS of the teaching kind
If you’re absent, you’ll be missed You’re not a number, or even just a student. You’re a partner in your own learning, and you’re their first priority. Sure, Oxford faculty write books, conduct research, and win awards. But their biggest passion is teaching. They’re nationally recognized for their commitment to teaching and lead faculty at other institutions in exploring best practices in college classrooms. Our faculty move from behind the lecture podium to collaborate with students, inspiring them to probe and discover for themselves—and that’s the heart of real learning.

In McQuaide’s Social Change in Developing Countries class, Alex traveled to Ecuador, engaging with indigenous communities and learning more about social issues there. McQuaide “is able to hold the best academic and nonacademic conversations. Plus, he shares my love of the outdoors,” says the avid tree climber and runner.
