Computer science practitioners build tools and systems to lift other disciplines, changing lives and communities.

Emmanuel students are well-suited for that responsibility, and our curriculum emphasizes ethics, equity, and sustainability. Our core requirements in programming, digital citizenship, ethics and technology, algorithms and data structures will give you an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of computing and proficiency in applying computer science principles to real-world situations. Whether you’re into numbers and data, art and design, big business, or the sciences, the major offers diverse electives in web development, application development platforms, physics and mathematics, cybersecurity, digital culture, social media and storytelling, business analytics and more.

Where Essential Values and Skills Meet the Real World

Where Essential Values and Skills Meet the Real World

Along with areas of knowledge and major requirements, you will cultivate essential values in the classroom and complete two courses in each area:

  • Social Justice (SJ): Develop knowledge, skills, values and motivation to participate beneficially in activities of personal and public concern.
  • Diversity & Multiculturalism (DM): Understand the complexity of identity the historical truths of different cultural perspectives to address bias and examine contemporary social issues. 

One hundred percent of Emmanuel students complete an internship as part of the core curriculum. In a city as dynamic as Boston, your options are bound only by the limits of your curiosity.

Students from the School of Business & Management intern at all Big 4 accounting agencies, major financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley and Bank of America, and creative agencies and cultural organizations such as Hill Holliday and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

The Capstone Experience involves completing a significant piece of work that requires the integration and application of learning from multiple courses.

For students in the School of Business & Management, capstone courses blend theory and practice, with experiences ranging from live case consulting, research and analysis on current industry topics, the assessment of company performance and strategy and thesis presentations.
