Institutional Overview

Emmanuel College—a Catholic, coeducational, residential, liberal arts and sciences college in Boston—has been educating critical thinkers, ethical decision makers and community leaders for more than 100 years.

Founded in 1919 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as the first Catholic college for women in New England, Emmanuel’s 17-acre campus in the heart of Boston’s educational, scientific, cultural, and medical communities. Emmanuel enrolls 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 intersects 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 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.

In 1919, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, an international Catholic religious congregation, opened Emmanuel College as the first Catholic college for women in New England. Deeply committed to education, the Sisters founded the College to provide women with educational opportunities they might not have had otherwise. For more than 80 years, Emmanuel served proudly as a Catholic liberal arts and sciences college for women and enjoyed a reputation for academic rigor and a commitment to social justice. In 2001, the College officially became a coeducational institution, expanding its educational mission to include young men in its undergraduate arts and sciences program. Now in its second century, the College is a thriving, future-focused institution, still deeply committed to the tenets of its founding.

Historic Highlights

In the early years, Emmanuel was a day college preparing women for professional fields such as business, law, medicine, and social work. Despite being commuters, students were involved in numerous co-curricular activities including student publications and athletics. The 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s saw growth not only in the student population, academic programs, and activities, but also in the physical campus, with additional land purchases on Brookline Avenue and Avenue Louis Pasteur. In 1949, the College completed the construction of Alumnae Hall. This science center, the first building constructed on campus after the original Administration Building, signified Emmanuel’s strength in the sciences, which continues today.

During the building boom of the 1950s and 1960s, Emmanuel became a residential college. New buildings included Marian Hall (residential, dining and student center), St. James Hall, Julie Hall, St. Ann Hall, Loretto Hall and St. Joseph Hall. The Cardinal Cushing Library was also dedicated in 1965. By 1968, residential students outnumbered commuters for the first time.

Over the years, the College has responded to shifting demographics in higher education and the world at large with an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. In the 1970s, Emmanuel began to offer degree completion programs to adult learners and, in 1990, the College expanded its programs to include flexible accelerated formats, with programs in business and nursing offered at satellite centers.

The 2000s saw dramatic growth and innovation, with enrollment tripling in the decade following the College’s decision to become coeducational. During this period the College added new facilities including the Jean Yawkey Center (student center) and the Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center. In 2009, the College partnered with the City of Boston to restore Roberto Clemente Field, across the street from campus, to serve as Emmanuel’s home athletic field. In 2013, Emmanuel completed the restoration of the historic Administration Building. In 2018, the College opened its newest and largest building, an 18-story, apartment-style residence hall for upperclass students, on the site where Julie Hall once stood.

And in 2019, the College marked its Centennial with celebrations that reflected on 100 years of transformative educational experiences and the bold, entrepreneurial spirit that enabled the College to thrive amid changes in society and in higher education. A significant development in its second century is the addition of a traditional undergraduate nursing program and the formal opening of the Maureen Murphy Wilkens School of Nursing & Clinical Sciences in 2021.

Amid changes, Emmanuel has remained steadfastly committed to its Catholic educational mission and its core values, which emphasize intellectual inquiry and integrity, a commitment to justice and peace, a strong sense of community, and service to others.

About Boston, MA

The Emmanuel College campus is in the heart of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, which means easy access to all that is cultural, historic, and fun. Besides the famous ballpark that bears its name, the Fenway area offers visitors a tale of two cities: the innovative and urban vs. the lush and serene.

As a part of the Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Emmanuel is located within a hub of hospitals, colleges, and research institutes, including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, and Boston Children’s Hospital. The location offers students interested in healthcare, science, and technology a head start in developing skills for future careers.

The neighborhood is not just about medicine and research. It is also home to Boston art institutions like the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where anyone can become inspired by the brush strokes of the great masters of art.

Across the street from campus, the Muddy River offers a front-row seat to Boston’s Emerald Necklace series of six parks and waterways stretching throughout the city. Designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who is perhaps best known for his creation of Manhattan’s Central Park, the park system includes miles of green spaces, bike and running trails, rivers, and ponds for all to enjoy.

Honors Program

The Emmanuel College Honors Program prepares students for graduate study and successful applications for scholarships and fellowships through a series of intellectually stimulating, rigorous honors courses and an independent research project in the student’s area of study.

To graduate within the Honors Program, students must complete four Honors courses, one Honors experience, and a distinction paper. The Honors experience can include studying abroad, working as a peer mentor in a class for first-year students, or serving as a research or instructional assistant with a faculty member.
