Emory University

Emory University, recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts college, superb 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.

Emory maintains an uncommon balance for an institution of its standing: it generates more research funding than any other Georgia university, while maintaining its traditional emphasis on teaching.

The university is enriched by the legacy and energy of Atlanta, and by collaboration among its schools, units and centers, as well as with affiliated institutions.
