Welcome to the Emory & Henry School of Arts & Sciences! The Arts & Sciences have had a long history of vibrant academic curricula that train students for successful careers, continuing graduate education, and community service since the first days of the College in 1836. Constantly “increasing in excellence,” as our college motto states, the Arts & Sciences have evolved to combine first-class pre-professional training with a humanistic core curriculum that develops citizenship and community service as essential corollaries to successful careers and lives.

Our award-winning faculty of accomplished teachers, scholars, and creative artists, along with our caring student success mentors and counselors, provide a network of support for each student from orientation to graduation. Whether your interests lie in athletics, the arts, outdoor recreation, or community service, you will find a home in the School of Arts & Sciences that values the education and nurturing of the whole person. Internships, networking opportunities, and community partnerships will pave the way for a smooth transition from school to career.

I invite you to explore the variety of undergraduate and graduate majors, minors, and interdisciplinary concentrations found within the School of Arts & Sciences. Take a virtual tour of our state-of-the-art facilities. Make contact with a professor in your area of interest or reach out to an admissions counselor. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
