Program Description:
Hosted by:  Oxford University: Corpus Christi College

Academic Focus: Academic fields available to take at Corpus Christi vary from year to year.  The subjects available to study are typically known in January for the following year.  Subjects of study may include Biochemistry, Chemistry, Materials, Mathematics, Medicine/Physiological Science, Physics, Psychology, Classics, Economics, English, History, Politics, and Philosophy.

We do not yet know what subjects will be open for the 2020-21 academic year, but we expect it to be rather limited.  We recommend you consider either St. Peter's or St. Edmund Hall and begin an application there.  In approximately late January 2020, we will learn what subjects are open at Corpus Christi.  If have started an application for St. Peter's or St. Edmund, and your subject(s) of interest matches what is available at Corpus Christi, you will be notified and given an opportunity to make an application there.

Approximate Dates:
Early October to mid June

Eligibility Requirements:  Students must meet the regular Emory College Study Abroad eligibility requirements in addition to the following program-specific requirements:

Minimum GPA 3.6 both overall and in primary subject area (higher GPA preferred)
Academic background in primary subject of interest

Courses: Students will take several tutorials with Oxford faculty. The tutorial involves weekly meetings between a member of the faculty and one or two students to discuss/study a specific academic topic. Students are assigned readings and usually an essay each week that must be prepared for the next meeting. The workload for the tutorial is heavy by U.S. standards. Students typically take two tutorials per term for a total of six tutorials per year. An Emory student spending a year at Oxford University would normally earn a full year's worth of credit at Emory. Please consult Emory College Study Abroad and relevant departments to determine appropriate course equivalencies at Emory.
