Emory University

Druid Hills, Georgia, United States
Emory University, recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the Southeast's leading health care systems, is located on a beautiful, leafy campus in Atlanta, Georgia's historic Druid Hills suburb.



The Methodist Episcopal Church founded Emory College in 1836 in the small Georgia town of Oxford. The founders named the town for the school's prestigious British cousin, and named the school for a bishop who dreamed of an American education that molded character as well as the mind.


The university offers academic degrees and programs through nine schools, including more than 70 undergraduate choices and dozens of graduate and professional specialties. The academic year is divided into two semesters, plus a summer term.


Our students pursue doctoral research in more than 40 specialties. The Woodruff Health Sciences Center brings together the research based at the university's schools of medicine, nursing and public health and at Yerkes National Primate Research Center with the expertise of Emory Healthcare. Our library system integrates the resources of the Robert W. Woodruff Library with several specialty collections on campus.
