EMU offers a Christian education like no other from a Mennonite Anabaptist perspective. A leader among faith-based universities, EMU offers undergraduate, graduate and seminary programs that emphasize peacebuilding, cross-cultural understanding, sustainability and service to others.
Just the right size
EMU is small enough that you can easily get to know classmates and faculty in various programs. Professors are mentors who know you personally and advise you 1:1. You can get involved in a variety of activities like theater, Student Government Association, campus ministry, intramurals or inter-collegiate sports, music or choir. All of these provide opportunities to learn more about yourself and develop valuable experiences for your future résumé.
Whatever your major in the end, you’ll benefit from the value of a liberal arts education. Employers and graduate schools appreciate applicants with a liberal arts education foundation because they are well-rounded, with wide exposure to issues and ideas from across disciplines and society.
Life after graduation
EMU graduates earn more than a degree – they’re prepared to be ethical leaders for the common good. 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?
Not 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.
Virginia and Pennsylvania
EMU has two locations and also offers many programs online. Whether you’re at our beautiful campus in Harrisonburg, Va. – close to two national forests and Shenandoah National Park – or in our thriving classrooms in Lancaster, Pa., you’ll notice the hospitality and community that is so important to EMU.
