Prospective Students

Whatever your interest, whatever major you’re considering, having quantitative skills—knowing not just how to gather data, but how to interpret it, and present it to broader audiences—will set you apart.

Emory’s Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods offers a range of options for developing and honing your quantitative skills. At the core of the student experience is our unique Quantitative Sciences (QSS) major, which allows you to gain both theoretical understanding of quantitative approaches and apply them to another discipline you’re interested in. 

We’ve also recently partnered with Emory’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science to create an Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMSBS) major. This mathematically rigorous major provides the foundation for in-depth quantitative research and statistical analysis, preparing you for graduate study in applied mathematics or in statistics. It is also suitable for those interested in interdisciplinary graduate training across the social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.

We also host public events and lectures throughout the year that bring leading researchers and scholars to campus.
