Emmanuel College—a Catholic, coeducational, residential, liberal arts and sciences college in Boston—has been educating critical thinkers, ethical decision-makers and community leaders since 1919.
Founded in 1919 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as the first Catholic college for women in New England, Emmanuel today is a coeducational, residential college with a 17-acre campus in the heart of Boston's educational, scientific, cultural and medical communities. Emmanuel enrols more than 2,000 students including 1,800 traditional undergraduate students from 35 states and territories and 42 countries.
At Emmanuel College, innovation and excellence in the liberal arts and sciences intersect with experiential learning opportunities, including student-faculty collaboration on research and scholarship; a 100% internship participation rate; study abroad programs; service learning; and scores of co-curricular activities that promote engagement and leadership. The College offers more than 70 majors, minors and concentrations in the arts, humanities, sciences, business, education and nursing, along with graduate programs in education, nursing and management, across five academic schools.
In all aspects of the educational experience, Emmanuel strives to provide students with an incomparable foundation for a lifetime of employability in a marketplace marked by constant change. Now in its second century, the College affirms its commitment to its educational mission and to real-world learning experiences throughout Boston and beyond. As a result, the College's graduates each year go on to master's degree and doctoral programs at prestigious universities and to positions in a broad range of professions.
