The Emory Experience

Academic excellence. Breakthrough research. Engaged faculty. Award-winning service learning. Global connections. A beautiful campus. World-changing alumni. A commitment to sustainability. It’s hard to know what’s most impressive about Emory University. 

Candler students are privileged to undertake their theological studies at Emory, one of the country’s premier research institutions. What’s more, they are blessed that Emory—unlike many prestigious universities—welcomes religion into conversations taking place around campus, both in classrooms and in the community.

Here, you are a valued partner in fulfilling Emory’s mission: to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. Here, the world truly is your parish.
