Greater depth. Wider reach.

Oxford College offers an innovative liberal arts curriculum in a small college setting. Professors are committed to the art of teaching and reaching students, and students benefit from our many opportunities to develop their leadership skills.

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 here.

Ways of Inquiry and Theory Practice/Service Learning classes have you examine and then apply the methods you’ve learned to the real world. A 12:1 student-faculty ratio means you’ll benefit from the close attention of faculty committed to novel ways of teaching. You’ll be able to work directly with them on research in the natural sciences or humanities, diving deeper into your academic interests.

You’ll arrive on Emory’s Atlanta campus as a junior with a significant amount of academic and personal accomplishments already behind you. With this solid foundation, you’ll know how to find answers to difficult questions, and you’ll continue to set high standards for yourself academically.

Start here, in a community of teachers and students—scholars—committed to bringing out the best in our college and in ourselves.
