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.
Lay the groundwork for your major at Oxford with courses at all levels that fulfill major requirements. Students can choose from 70+ majors and 50+ minors and have access to a variety of pre-professional opportunities as well. And more than half of our students double major.Learn more
