As a Christian liberal arts college, Emmanuel provides educational opportunities that go beyond job training in marketable skills for employment. Studying liberal arts is not synonymous with career preparation. The general education program is designed to help the person develop as a holistic individual in society. In that a liberal arts education seeks to help the student make a life rather than merely a living, and that career goals often change, the general education program is highly valuable for career preparation, and for further work toward a baccalaureate degree.
