Where We Are
Education is as much about passion as scholarship. It’s about reaching and teaching all students in ways that are both meaningful and culturally relevant.
As an elementary or secondary education major at Emmanuel, you will first explore issues of access and equity in the history of education in America. Then, prepare yourself, through in-class instruction and site placements, for research-based practice in the design, delivery and management of curriculum and instruction in math, the sciences, English language arts and social studies. Using Boston as an extended classroom, Emmanuel students conduct field-based experiences in nearly three dozen area schools, allowing for first-hand observation and engagement with learners from all cultures and with diverse instructional needs.
The Emmanuel College education program prepares teachers to be leaders in creating and sustaining-in their classrooms, schools and the wider community-a culture of collaborative inquiry that is centered on students, their learning and healthy development. Through the integration of field and classroom-based experiences, Emmanuel's pre-service teachers develop the content knowledge and pedagogical skills to create inclusive classroom communities that inspire and engage children, adolescents and young adults in their learning. Grounded in the mission and good works of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, the education program prepares graduates who aspire "to create justice and peace for all."
With majors in elementary and secondary education, Emmanuel’s education department teaches students to develop inclusive classroom communities and rich curricula that inspire and engage children, adolescents and young adults in their learning.See what we offer
