Academics

Liberal arts like no other.

As one of Emory University’s nine schools, Oxford College is a small liberal arts college for first- and second-year students set within a nationally ranked, large research institution. You’ll take a broad range of academically rigorous courses to build understanding across disciplines, then select a major at the end of your second year. You’ll learn in a number of ways through real-world experience, hands-on research, and studying abroad. And because we're a teaching community completely focused on first- and second-year education, you’ll find a phenomenal foundation at Oxford for whatever path you choose.

Areas of Study

Faculty & Teaching

Faculty who major in you.

Sure, Oxford faculty write books and win prizes. But what they like to do most—and what they do best—is teach. Oxford faculty are nationally recognized for their commitment to teaching, and they lead faculty at other institutions in exploring best practices in college classrooms.

Classroom smarts, real-world knowledge

At Oxford, students experience more interactive types of teaching through classes across disciplines that give them the fundamental concepts and principles of the subjects they’re studying but move into the realm of real-world discovery through research or work in community settings.
