Academics for the Common Good
EMU believes the best education combines rigorous academics with concern for the common good. Professors are mentors who know students by first name, chat with them over lunch or coffee, and nurture their life goals inside and outside the classroom.
Cross-cultural study, whether a semester abroad, three weeks in the summer, or an internship in Washington, D.C., prepares students to be critical thinkers with a global focus.
Our graduate program in justice and peacebuilding has earned world renown. Nursing students learn to care for the "whole" person. Student-athletes develop leadership and life skills they carry through adulthood.
EMU graduates display a unique combo of strong ethics, professional skills and flexibility, with a focus on environmental and social sustainability. Visit EMU and learn more about our small Christian university in Virginia.
