  • Emmaus Named #1 Small College for a Counseling Degree

    Emmaus Bible College has been ranked 1st among the top 25 colleges and universities for students to study Psychology or Counseling in an article released March 2015 (The Top 25 Small Colleges for a Counseling Degree, by Kirsten Hughes). Colleges and universities with less than 3,000 students were evaluated from theInstitute of Education Sciences’ College Navigator on the basis of regional accreditation,graduation rates, retention rates, and net price.

    Mr. Phil Boom, President of EBC noted that “Students come to Emmaus because of the quality of our academic programs, and the rigorous preparation for life after college. Our graduates are equipped to impact the world for Christ by their Emmaus education, and our Counseling Psychology program is just another example of what we do best.”

    The Mission of the Counseling department is to equip students with the ability to integrate, under a biblical authority, theories, practices, and methodologies of counseling psychology for effective counseling ministry to those in need. Our vision for the Counseling program at Emmaus is that students be fully involved in the knowing of God’s word, so that they can be “Berean” in their assessment and evaluation of counseling psychology. Mr. Ben Mathew, Chair of the Counseling department notes that “The degree offered is a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies and Counseling Psychology. We desire our students to be good counselors only by first being good theologians. The discerning Christian counselor should be distinctively Christian both in foundation and method, not just able to give a restatement of naturalistic principles with some biblical jargon thrown in. It is with these convictions that we humbly ask the Lord’s grace in training others to know His word, to love others, and help bring many to glorify our Lord.”

    The majority of students graduating with a bachelor's degree will work in some division of human or social services. Some common job titles in the area include Case Management, Career Counselor, Rehabilitation Specialist, or Psychiatric Technician.

    Another option for many of our graduates will be applying to graduate schools to pursue Master’s and Doctrinal degrees in Counseling and Psychology. The courses taken at Emmaus will meet or exceed the prerequisites needed to gain admission into most private and public graduate schools. Common jobs with a graduate education include Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Social Worker, Sports Psychology or Occupational Therapy.

    A degree in Counseling Psychology at Emmaus is an asset that will propel you into programs and opportunities that will continue your skills in helping and caring for people in need.

  • A New (Out)look for Emmaus Bible College

    In order to more accurately represent our mission, and to better position the college as a contender in a competitive marketplace, Emmaus Bible College has adopted a new logo. Established August 2015, the Emmaus Road Shield Logo will replace former logos and word marks and will serve as the primary icon in most branding applications. The Emmaus Seal (Est. 1999) will continue to serve as the official seal of the college.

    The key element of our new logo is the Emmaus Road, which is at the center of the icon. The story of Christ on the road to Emmaus (from Luke 24) is a part of our heritage and a strong element of our identity. Supporting concepts include the educational journey (or path) as well as a shield, both representing our position as a historic institution of higher learning. Additionally, Emmaus prepares students to take up the Shield of Faith in defense of the Gospel. Providing quality biblical and professional education, Emmaus Bible College equips students with highly relevant, marketable degrees.

    Established in 1941, Emmaus Bible College has developed a reputation worldwide for our trusted Bible teaching. Students from across North America and around the world continue to value studying the Word of God in a systematic way, and recent alumni can be found ministering in over 33 countries of the world. By design, Bible is our middle name, and providing biblical instruction continues to be a core element of our mission.

    Emmaus is also being recognized for our quality professional education. During the 90s Emmaus began adding dual majors with professional programs in order to better equip our students for the marketplace. Now offering programs in Business Administration, Teacher Education, Counseling Psychology, Nursing, Computer Information Systems, ESL Education and more, Emmaus is producing graduates with highly marketable degrees, and our graduates of professional programs consistently find employment in their field or a related field. Our graduation rate is over 40% higher than the national average for private institutions. Emmaus Bible College is ranked No. 1 on a list of the “Top 25 Small Colleges for a Counseling Degree” (bestcounselingdegrees.net). And year after year, our student satisfaction rates are higher than those of our peers.

    At Emmaus Bible College, you don’t have to choose between a highly marketable professional degree and a transformational encounter with God’s Word. This is relevant because the workforce, our churches and communities need more than just college graduates. They need moral, ethical professionals who lead by serving and excel by honoring Christ in their careers.
