One of the best ways to determine whether Emory is the right place to continue your education is to attend a campus during your campus visit. Classes are available for you to attend Monday through Friday during the academic year. They are not available during the summer sessions, exam periods or school holidays. Specifically, you may attend available classes from mid-September until late-November and from late-January until mid-April.
If you plan to attend a class, we recommend you review the available courses listing prior to your visit. (Please be aware the last day for class visits for the Spring 2013 term is April 19.) There is no need to register for a class visit in advance. Once on campus, arrive at the Oxford Road Building between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. and a member of the Admission staff will assist you in completing our class visit form. Do note that most classes take place before noon.
Major: English with Theater concentration
“A liberal arts education means that I have the time and liberty to take courses across several different disciplines while being able to mold the assorted courses I take to my own interests.
“I take courses in English, theater, sociology, and Irish studies. There is a huge relation between them. I started taking Irish studies when I realized I wanted to study two different areas of literature. I concentrate in drama and playwriting in my English major, while my Irish studies minor allows me to study Irish literature and drama. The sociological perspective ties everything together—I am able to apply a sociological perspective (mainly gender) to the literature in both English and Irish studies.”
