History… the story of humankind
EMU is a Christian liberal arts college dedicated to Mennonite values of peacebuilding and service. We study history from a global viewpoint, one that highlights our need for one another. Study history with us, and we’ll analyze the human experience through a peace and justice lens.
History In Our Backyard
Our campus is only two hours from both Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital, and Richmond, the Confederate capital. We’re also close to many other historic sites in history-rich Virginia, including the unique Museum of American Frontier Culture in nearby Staunton, many Civil War battlefields, and the National Park Service’s historic Sklyine Drive.
