4 Emmanuel College

Emmanuel College 5 Emmanuel College MISSION To educate students in a dynamic learning community rooted in the liberal arts and sciences and shaped by strong ethical values, a commitment to social justice and service, the Catholic intellectual tradition and the global mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. VISION Emmanuel will be recognized as a leader in combining an extraordinary liberal arts and sciences education with real-world experience and a commitment to addressing the critical ethical issues of the day. Students will choose Emmanuel as the place to develop in every respect while preparing for lives of leadership, professional achievement, global engagement and profound purpose. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur opened Emmanuel College in 1919 as New England’s first Catholic college for women. Today, as a Catholic college in the heart of Boston, Emmanuel continues to honor this powerful and timeless legacy. Situated in the Fenway neighborhood, Emmanuel’s beautiful residential campus is home to nearly 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation and around the world. Emmanuel both enriches and draws inspiration from the vibrant, innovative city that surrounds it. In this dynamic environment, students take advantage of boundless opportunities to expand their worldview through rigorous coursework, collaborations with distinguished and dedicated faculty, active participation in our campus community, and countless internship and career opportunities throughout the Boston area and beyond. Emmanuel’s more than 70 programs in the sciences, liberal arts and business foster intellectual exploration, spirited discourse and substantive learning experiences beyond the classroom that honor our commitment to educate the whole person and prepare students to emerge as tomorrow’s leaders. With a solid grounding in the Catholic intellectual tradition, robust academic programs and an ongoing commitment to provide an ethical and relevant 21st-century education, Emmanuel inspires students to discover—and begin to fulfill—their life’s profound purpose. 2021-2022 Academic Catalog
