Many colleges talk about being "in the Boston area," but Emmanuel is at the city’s very heart. For our students, this means unparalleled access to world-class internship opportunities, cultural experiences, entertainment, recreation and more—a global classroom, right outside campus gates.
More than outstanding scholars, Emmanuel faculty are collaborators and Boston is renowned for its mix of long-established institutions and vibrant startup culture. Here, the possibilities for cultivating real-world, hands-on experience are nearly limitless. A short walk or ride on the "T" places students at the doorsteps of dozens of industry-leading organizations in areas of research, technology, finance, media, healthcare, social service and more. Here, they obtain internship and career opportunities that students and graduates in other cities may only ever aspire to experience.
Emmanuel’s home in the heart of the city is a huge part of the student life experience. In a cultural capital as dynamic as Boston, there is always something new to see or an old favorite to revisit. Our students enjoy all city life has to offer—exhilarating games and hard-won championships by our hometown sports teams, tons of green space and waterfront views, celebrated works of art, music and theater, and of course, some of the best food in the country.
