Doing things differently since 1952

Transcending the boundaries of method, theory, and discipline

The liberal arts encompass the forms of knowledge that make us literate citizens. A liberal arts education includes the sciences and the humanities, and demands the integration of knowledge from a wide variety of sources. The Institute for the Liberal Arts seeks to advance the interdisciplinary character of the liberal arts. Our programs bring together students and faculty from across the university to address complex intellectual and social issues from diverse perspectives. Founded in 1952 as the Graduate Institute of the Liberal Arts, the ILA has a tradition of nurturing emergent fields of study and encouraging new modes of inquiry at Emory and beyond. Today, the ILA provides a unique intellectual environment for the pursuit of research and teaching that cuts across conventional academic boundaries.
