Our Academic Community

students in greenhouseEmory College of Arts and Sciences, founded in 1836, is Emory University’s primary undergraduate division with more than 5,600 students. Our intensive liberal arts curriculum is backed by all the resources of one of the world's top research universities.

As the academic core of Emory University, we are driven by our passions for inquiry and discovery. Leading the way is our 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.
