Student Life

At Emmaus Baptist College, students are offered a small-class environment where they will receive personal attention from instructors. You won’t be just a number here. On campus, you’ll be known by name to every other student as well as to faculty and administration.

You will find dedicated and qualified instructors, camaraderie among the student body, and classes that are challenging spiritually and academically, but financially economical. We sincerely want to help you reach your potential in Christ and your goals in ministry.
