About Emory College

Emory College of Arts and Sciences, founded in 1836, is Emory University’s primary undergraduate division with more than 5,700 students. Our intensive liberal arts curriculum is backed by all of the resources of one of the world's top research universities.

Emory College plays a critical role in supporting and expanding the liberal arts throughout the University and its nine undergraduate and professional schools. We are driven by our passions for inquiry and discovery, which are led by the College’s renowned 550-member faculty who bring their path-breaking research – and commitment to excellent teaching – to the classroom everyday.

With more than 50 departments and programs, 86 majors, and 63 minors, our students explore widely and dive deeply in rigorous courses of study that emphasize critical thinking, the nature of evidence from multiple perspectives and the ability to effectively reason and communicate. Our students are encouraged – and expected – to ask bold questions and expand the boundaries of knowledge.

Our mission is to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity.
