Oxford College is a specialized division of Emory University that enrolls 900 students in a liberal arts intensive program for the first two years of the Emory baccalaureate degree.  The student body is highly diverse.  Students who complete the Oxford program are automatically juniors in Emory College or the Woodruff School of Nursing as they choose, or may compete with other Emory juniors for admission to the Goizueta School of Business.  Occupying Emory’s original, historic campus thirty miles east of Atlanta in the village of Oxford, GA, the largest classes typically enroll thirty three students.  Distinctive characteristics of the Oxford experience are the close working relationships between faculty and students and the College’s exceptional sense of supportive community.  For more information, please see http://oxford.emory.edu/.
