From The School

Emmanuel College offers more than 50 areas of study in the liberal arts and sciences, providing a rigorous and personal academic experience. Academic programs at Emmanuel are driven by mission, helping to create lives rich in meaning, service and purpose. Students graduate with honed analytical, communicative and creative skills, bringing ethical standards and moral sensitivity to every endeavor. Through required courses drawn from a cross-section of the liberal arts disciplines, students are exposed to models of analytical reasoning, symbolic thinking, observation, creativity, critical thinking, moral reasoning, self-knowledge; and significant intellectual content from the fields of history, literature, the arts, philosophy, religion, the social sciences, the natural sciences and the study of cultures outside the United States. All new students are also required to take a first-year seminar of his or her choice in the fall. In small classes, working closely with each other and a member of the faculty, students are introduced to the academic traditions of the liberal arts and sciences, and to the expectations and values of Emmanuel College’s academic community. Emmanuel College's Office of Academic Advising provides students with the support needed to attain their academic goals and serves as a model of the Emmanuel experience. All first-year students are assigned an academic advisor who assists them in navigating the transition to college and in developing a unique four-year plan. Through the Career Center, students have access to resources for finding internships and preparing for life after Emmanuel. Each year, students who demonstrate superior academic ability and promise are invited to participate in Emmanuel College's Honors Program. This four-year academic and co-curricular program combines a rigorous, discussion-based curriculum with complementary opportunities such as cultural activities, faculty-directed research projects and service in the community. The program begins with the yearlong Honors Colloquium for first-year students and includes: four interdisciplinary, writing-intensive seminars; a service-learning component; and an independent research project.
