Emory University

Emory University is one of the world's leading centers for discovery and learning and empowers the active, passionate pursuit of learning for a better world. Combining nine undergraduate and professional schools with the largest health care system and sponsored research base of any university in Georgia, Emory is enriched by the legacy and energy of Atlanta, whose downtown is just 15 minutes from campus.

In addition to being a research powerhouse, Emory has a tradition of offering fine teaching. Approximately 14,000 students are enrolled at Emory, about half pursuing undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts, nursing or business, and the rest enrolled in graduate and professional programs.

Through partnerships with Grady Memorial Hospital, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Georgia Institute of Technology and other entities, Emory creates improved quality of life in Georgia. Emory is the fourth-largest private employer in the metro Atlanta area with more than 24,000 employees, including approximately 3,600 faculty members.

Emory was founded by the Methodist Church in 1836 at Oxford, Georgia, where Oxford College, Emory's distinctive freshman/sophomore college, is located.
