As the importance and inevitability of a global culture becomes more and more evident, our students gravitate to courses of study that focus on the languages, customs, politics, and economics of other societies. These disciplines are made all the more exciting by the study abroad opportunities available to all Emory students, regardless of major. Imagine living and learning for a semester in a country whose language and culture you’re studying. Emory makes this possible every semester, and study abroad credits transfer back to Emory.

“I have the incredible privilege of working with and learning from our amazing professors and graduate students. I particularly enjoy the interdisciplinary nature of Women’s Studies and appreciate the range of class topics. From classes on feminist science fiction to disability studies, our department at Emory truly understands the importance of an intersectional lens and interdisciplinary focus.
“In addition to my women's studies classes, I have also taken courses in the Anthropology, English, Film, Religion and Comparative Literature departments. Most of the classes I have take in these other departments were deliberately chosen to enhance my knowledge of women's studies material.”
