Emory College of Arts and Sciences is a liberal arts college within Emory University. At Emory we embrace the liberal arts philosophy that all knowledge is related. We believe that well-rounded knowledge and experiences are key to you reaching your full potential, both as an individual and as a member of society. A liberal arts curriculum allows and encourages students to approach and apply subjects—from literature and physics to psychology—from a number of perspectives.
Speaking of numbers, we like small ones when it comes to class size. At Emory you’ll find that the average class size is 20 students, a fact that affords for a more participatory educational experience and more attention from faculty and peers.
Double Major: Chemistry and Religion
Extracurricular Activities: Varsity Track and Field, Worship Deacon and Wesley Fellowship, Writing Center Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader (Chemistry)
“A liberal arts education is about the freedom to radically rethink traditional academic doctrines and social frameworks. It builds interdisciplinary bridges, opening the mind to solutions outside of convention. At Emory students are in an environment that incubates questions and encourages imaginative, creative, thoughtful solutions.
"By majoring in both chemistry and religion, I deal with disciplines that academia sees as oppositional. I see that both seek to depict reality through metaphorical languages that are revisable in the light of experiments and experiences.”
