Emmanuel Boston

Table of Contents A personal college creates a curriculum designed to build both character and career. Soaring on the vision of a Catholic liberal arts and sciences education, a personal college champions new programs in biostatistics, crime and justice, neuroscience, sociology, sport management and more. Emmanuel College is a personal college. We expect you to bring your all to campus. In return, we offer powerful advantages. Here you will have opportunities to research and publish as an undergraduate. Here you will find internships in amazing companies. From here, you will graduate prepared for medical schools, doctoral programs and a world where your job is a meaningful expression of who you are. A personal college is a place where dreamers find critical thinking skills. Ambition finds rigor. Heart finds service. And faith finds a global perspective. We are that college, a force for action that packs a powerful punch

Academics Here every class is taught by a professor, not a teaching assistant, creating a deep, personal student/faculty relationship that begins day one. This is an engaged, energetic faculty with global connections in their fields. The classes are small; the horizon is huge. With more than 30 areas of study to explore, at Emmanuel College you will flex muscles of both the mind and the heart as you develop the ability to acquire and evaluate knowledge, and the imagination to shape new ways of perceiving, thinking and creating. This is the basis of a Catholic liberal arts and sciences education. To develop your intellectual potential, your sense of self and your commitment to serve others in the community. To become a critical thinker, an ethical decision maker and a contributing member of the world around you.

At Emmanuel, Boston is your extended classroom We live in a vibrant international, culturally rich, sports-crazy and intellectually engaged city, and we take advantage of it at every turn.

In chemistry, you won’t just read about pH levels, runoff and ecosystems, you’ll analyze them in the collection of brooks, ponds and culverts known as Boston’s Muddy River.

Opportunities in Science The sciences have been an integral part of an Emmanuel College education since its early years. This is a tradition we continue to expand upon today. Our neighbors are some of the most prestigious medical, academic and research institutions in the world. This location offers you unmatched opportunities in highly competitive fields of science, technology and health care. The Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center Welcome to academics in action.

You’ll live in the same residence hall with other students who are equally driven by their love of science. And you’ll learn together, supported by computers loaded with science software in the lounges, organized tutoring and study sessions, special faculty presentations and conversations, peer mentoring and more. Merck Research Laboratories — Boston Emmanuel is the only college in the country with a private pharmaceutical research facility right on campus. This is a partnership that gives you access and opportunity to a world few undergraduates ever get to see. Merck Internships offer exciting opportunities in the fields of cancer treatment, Alzheimer’s disease and obesity. The Merck Scholars Program offers special Emmanuel scholarships based on outstanding academic performance in the sciences. And the Emmanuel/Merck Joint Science Seminar Series brings together leaders in the scientific community, Merck scientists and Emmanuel faculty and students.



We’re here to help you excel Our goal is to position you for success at the college level and beyond, for a lifetime of learning and participating in a diverse and global society. Your Academic Advisor will help you transition from high school to college life. You’ll meet regularly to develop short- and long-term academic plans, select and schedule courses, review your academic progress and tap into additional resources. In the Academic Resource Center (ARC) you’ll find the programs, peers and professionals to help you hone your learning skills, improve your writing abilities and turn peer tutoring into a powerful resource. The Office of Internships and Career Development has a variety of resources to help you in all phases of your career development, from initial assessments to skill-building workshops and postings for both internships and, eventually, jobs. Should further education be in your future, Graduate School Preparation will help ready you for the GRE, GMAT, MCAT and LSAT exams, with everything from applications and timelines to study guides and test prep. The Cardinal Cushing Library holds over 140,000 print and electronic titles, as well as CDs, DVDs, videos, reference materials, journal subscriptions, databases and special collections. The library also houses the Academic Computer Center and the Language Laboratory.


The Emmanuel Learning Experience We are a community with a lifelong passion for teaching and learning, rooted in the commitment to rigorous intellectual inquiry and the pursuit of truth. Our goal is to instill in you the knowledge, skills and habits of a mind developed through the study of the liberal arts and sciences. We believe that the concepts and the vocabulary, as well as the creative and critical thinking, of the liberal arts and sciences are basic to your intellectual, aesthetic and moral development. In short, a full and meaningful life. At Emmanuel, courses taught by teams of professors bring more than one perspective to the same subject matter. The sciences team with philosophy, for example, for a spirited discussion on the moral and ethical implications of an exciting, cutting-edge breakthrough. It’s all part of our founding mission to transform lives and make a better world with a strong values-based education, integrating an exploration of human values and ethical issues with empirical facts and a traditional body of knowledge.

“There is a sense of newness here, a revitalization of our mission, and an openness to growth.”


Sister Mary Johnson, SND

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur In 1919, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who believe that education is the greatest work on earth, opened Emmanuel College to provide an education to those who might otherwise not have the opportunity to achieve one. Their mission was clear: making known God’s goodness ‌ educating for life. The rigorous intellect, the vibrant faith and the joyful spirit of this powerful mission are embodied in Sister Janet Eisner, SND, who first came to Emmanuel as a student. She returned as a professor, served as the Chair of the English Department and the Director of Admissions, and now serves as President. Sister Janet loves the students of Emmanuel College. But make no mistake, her expectations are high. This is an education that will make a difference in your life. In return, it is expected that you will make a difference in the lives of others.


Colleges of the Fenway Six colleges are better than one. Especially when your five neighbors have the campuses and special areas of study of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services, Simmons College, Wentworth Institute of Technology and Wheelock College. Together, we share library privileges, cross-register for each other’s courses, play in our joint orchestra, compete in intramural sports and more. This is city life at its best, hanging out with the neighbors.

Carolyn A. Lynch Institute In this institute our personal commitment to provide urban elementary and secondary school children with a top-quality education in mathematics, science and technology is met with a powerful combination of resources and training for you, their future teacher. In this innovative teaching laboratory, generously funded by the Lynch Foundation, we help you become fluent in “smart classroom” technologies, empower your dedication with special skills that will help you transform the lives of kids who sorely need your help, and award scholarships.



Research, Publishing & Presentations In most colleges, working on major research projects shoulder-to-shoulder with faculty is for graduate students, who fight to be noticed in the sea of students eager for the privilege of stepping into world-class research labs. In most colleges, undergrads never see their work in print. But Emmanuel is not most colleges. This is a personal college committed to delivering a powerful punch. Here, professors are always on the lookout for outstanding poems that can be published in anthologies, and papers that can be delivered at national conferences in science, psychology or political science. Faculty members have reputations and connections all over the world, but they choose to teach at Emmanuel because they are driven to be part of your transformation. Just ask any of these students.

“We want students to leave saying, ‘That was awesome. What’s next? I’m ready.’” Josef Kurtz, Associate Professor of Biology

Internships & Career Development Intellectual rigor meets practical reality and theory meets practice in valuable internships across all disciplines. Your internship will be a pivotal component of your educational experience and an essential opportunity in your journey toward both a professional career and graduate school. Here in Boston, Emmanuel College has partnerships across a broad spectrum of arenas, from marketing to financial services, from politics to communications, from law enforcement to health care. From Fortune 500 to non-profit, an internship will give you an on-the-spot view of how the world works. A world you are eager to join. A world you may change someday. A world that welcomes Emmanuel students like you.


Daniel D’Amato, Class of 2010 

Major: Management Internship: PUMA “I learned from this laid-back but professional office environment what no classroom could ever teach me. Although course work definitely prepared me for the real world, my internship helped my mindset transition from that of a student to a full-time professional. I gained confidence and produced quality work working for the shoes I’ve worn all my life!”

Kana Ito, Class of 2010 

International Student from Japan Major: Art History Internship: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston “I helped build the MFA’s online learning tool, which transforms exhibitions into online galleries that teachers and students can access at any time. For each gallery I developed learning goals, background readings, classroom activities and online resources. I discovered how digital media can create a fun, modern way to learn and teach through art.”

Kara O’Shea, Class of 2010 

Major: English/Communications Internship: Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel “At the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel I worked with the regional director of public relations. I wrote press releases for events such as Boston’s Winter Restaurant Week and worked with social media tools promoting the multiple Fairmont hotels. My goal was to learn about PR within the hospitality industry. I definitely achieved it.”

Christine Haggerty, Class of 2010 

Major: Global Studies Internship: O’Neill and Associates “My time at O’Neill and Associates offered me insight into the bigger picture of working in government and public relations and helped me determine a potential career. It was fascinating getting to work with some of the most well-known companies in Boston. I am excited to see where I can go from here.”

“A Catholic college is a place where the dialogue between faith and reason is taken seriously. Here students engage in discussions of the ethical issues of our time.� Sister Janet Eisner, SND, President


Mission & Spirituality In an active campus community committed to social justice, you make a difference, when and where you want. We believe a personal and loving God calls each of us to engage in the contemporary world around us. This is a community of possibilities, a force for action. Campus Ministry Welcome to the soul of our mission, a community that lives and celebrates the messages of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, a belief in the goodness of God and the goodness of God’s people, no matter what faith they follow. Through focused ministries, educational programs, volunteer service, prayer and Liturgies, Campus Ministry provides opportunities for you to deepen your spirituality, to act justly and to live faithfully. The Center for Mission & Spirituality This is not a building, this is a cause that lives within the hearts of the entire Emmanuel community. The Center seeks to translate into action the strong missions, beliefs and legacy of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

We keep the connection between faith and action alive in many ways: Alternative Spring Break America Reads English as a Second Language Program Jumpstart Peace and Justice Club Peace Games SAGE Mentor Program Spark the Truth Sunday Service Group Tutoring in After-School Programs


Jean Yawkey Center for Community Leadership We not only believe in community leadership, we make it work. We develop service opportunities and leadership skills for our students, while building bridges between this community and the young people of the city of Boston through after-school and summer programs. Funded in part by a major grant from the Yawkey Foundation, this Center is alive with progress, with programs, cultural competency seminars, new service learning courses and scholarships to keep students involved in the greater community.

Your Network of Alumni They came to Emmanuel as you will, eager for the knowledge of the past and the skills for the future, and perhaps a little nervous. They left four years later curious, confident and prepared for a lifetime of personal fulfillment and professional achievement, treating patients in hospitals and handling investments in financial firms. Teaching kids in schools all across the country, keeping you on the edge of your seat in TV dramas and looking for cures in research labs. The alumni of Emmanuel are not just those who came before you, they are a lifelong network of contacts and friends from coast to coast and continent to continent.

Right now you’ll find recent alumni pursuing exciting careers here: Allied Advertising • Arnold Worldwide • Bank of America • Bentley Publishing • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center • Boathouse Group • Brigham and Women’s Hospital • Cambridge Savings Bank • Cell Signaling Technologies • Children’s Hospital Boston • Cisco Systems • Citigroup Citi Hedge Funds • Ernst & Young • Genzyme • Harvard School of Public Health • Mellon Financial • New England Journal of Medicine • Old Sturbridge Village • Paul Revere House • Perkins School for the Blind • Soundtrack Studios • State House of Massachusetts • USS Constitution Museum


They’re not looking for you to catch up with them, they want to see you go beyond them.

“When I interned with Genzyme I was eager to demonstrate my abilities to the world. I guess I did. Now I’m a Finance and Sales Operations Analyst there.”

David Jalkut, Class of 2009

Eleanor Mulvaney Seamans, Class of 1971 Chief Operating Officer, Seamans Capital Management Established Mulvaney Leadership Institute at Emmanuel College “My Emmanuel experience taught me to make sense of complexity, take personal responsibility for continuous learning and focus on social responsibility. Today the College continues this rich tradition of helping each student to bridge the gap between academic exploration and career success.”

Anne McGrail, Class of 1987 Writer and Producer CSI: NY, CSI: Miami and Boomtown “When I first came to Emmanuel I felt as if I knew little about the outside world. When I left the College, however, I had a much stronger sense of the world around me and had the courage to go after what I wanted. Now I’m a writer and producer on TV.”

Serghino René, Class of 2005 

Program Assistant Institute for Global Leadership, Tufts University “At the Institute we prepare new generations of critical thinkers for effective and ethical leadership; good global citizens ready to address international and national issues across cultures. Emmanuel prepared me well for this mission.”

Sam LoCascio, Class of 2009 Research Associate/Clinical Trials Laboratory Coordinator Columbia University Center of Immunology “It was research opportunities such as my internship with Merck Research Laboratories —Boston that got me where I am today. The experience offered valuable insight into the industry, and I was excited to be challenged by such an environment while representing the College.”

Krystle North, Class of 2009 Research Data Coordinator Patient Safety and Quality, Children’s Hospital Boston “The opportunity to be fully immersed in your field of interest is so important as a student, especially when you’re not sure what you want to do after graduation. This turned out to be a great fit for me. I’m sure my internship experience was a huge factor in their decision to hire me.”



Your Network of Alumni  What is the value of a Catholic liberal arts and sciences education? The freedom to explore your mind and your heart and learn what you really want to do with your life. For many Emmanuel students, that means graduate school. Abigail Clark, Class of 2010 

M.S. Candidate, Zoology, University of New Hampshire “Emmanuel undoubtedly prepared me for the next stage in my life, which is pursuing graduate studies. While studying at Emmanuel, my personal goal was to intern at the New England Aquarium. I’m grateful to have achieved it. My experience definitely encouraged me to seek more answers surrounding marine life.”

Chris Borges, Class of 2010 

Ph.D. Candidate, Immunology, Harvard Medical School “I had opportunities at Emmanuel that few undergraduates could imagine. I was a part of the Neuro-Immunology Research Project all four years, and as a junior, I was chosen from a pool of mostly post-doctoral students and hospital residents to present research at the American Transplant Congress. Harvard Medical School will train me, but Emmanuel is where I realized I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life to immunology and bone marrow transplantation research.”

Kristen Breslin, Class of 2010 

M.B.A./M.S. Candidate, Accounting, Northeastern University “Emmanuel helped me to discover a career path. From my internship with the accounting firm of Robert Goodman, P.C., I learned how an accounting firm works from people who were willing to help me grow. And I learned that when I graduate a small-sized office is the ideal environment for me, as it allows for more opportunity to learn and take on responsibility.”

Ryan Rivard, Class of 2009 M.S. Candidate, Mental Health Counseling, Boston College “My experiences at Emmanuel empowered me with knowledge I use every day as I continue my studies at Boston College. In the Alternative Spring Break program, I traveled to places where people needed help. I visited New Jersey, Arizona and also traveled to Ecuador. Whether I was sorting out truckloads, working in health clinics or serving meals in homeless shelters, it was great to know my efforts made an impact on people.”

Right now you’ll find recent alumni pursuing higher education here:

• Boston College • Boston University • Brandeis University • Carnegie Mellon University • Columbia University • Duke University • Edinburgh University • Fordham University • Georgetown University • Harvard Medical School • Harvard University • London School of Economics • New York University • Northeastern University • Pratt Institute • Tufts Dental School • Tufts University
