The university celebrates the study and growth of the humanities through dedicated departments and programs and through institutional commitments to interdisciplinary research and teaching.

The Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry serves as a focal point for humanities endeavors at Emory and serves to advance research and teaching, overall, in the humanities.

The Mellon Humanities Pathways program highlights how undergraduate studies in the humanities can lead to fulfilling career pursuits across a wide variety of fields from business and technical fields to finance and health care.

The program is a shared endeavor between Emory College of Arts and Sciences and Oxford College.
