EMU is a leader among faith-based universities offering undergraduate, graduate and seminary programs that emphasize peacebuilding, cross-cultural understanding, sustainability and service to others. EMU offers a Christian education like no other, from a Mennonite Anabaptist perspective.
Here, professors are mentors who challenge you to grow in your faith, to broaden your worldview through time spent in another culture, and to work side-by-side to reach new academic heights. Students take courses at our main campus in Harrisonburg, VA., at our Lancaster, Pa., site, online, and across the globe through our well-known cross-cultural program.
Life after graduation
EMU graduates earn more than a degree – they’re prepared to be ethical leaders in their field of choice. The impact they have had on the world has been tremendous, if one looks at the core of organizations like World Vision, Amnesty International, Oxfam, Mennonite Central Committee, and Heifer International.

What’s a Mennonite?
familiar with Mennonites? Mennonites belong to the historic peace churches.
But more than half the EMU student body has a different faith background, and nearly 40 religious groups are represented on campus from all over the world. That diversity allows for life-changing cross-cultural learning.
