Graduate Studies

The goal of Emory's Ph.D. program is to train the next generation of scholars. Our program covers a variety of substantive areas but is united in its emphasis on careful theory-building and rigorous empirical analysis.

We encourage "learning by doing" through close faculty-student mentoring. With roughly thirty faculty and cohorts of about seven students per year, our high faculty-student ratio ensures that each student receives significant guidance throughout the program. These faculty-student partnerships lead to collaboration on published scholarly works and major research projects.
