Computer Studies Department
Even in the area of technology, the Bible remains central at Emmaus. For example, the ethics taught in our computer security courses have their foundation in the truths of scripture. Our courses and tracks are relevant to today's technology needs and are constantly being improved and refined to keep up with the dynamic world of computer technology. Furthermore, most courses have less than 10 students which enables the instructor to tailor each class to the students' needs including one-on-one coaching.
Computer Studies Graduates
My time at Emmaus was beneficial to my life and growth as someone who wanted to work in the computer science field and at the same time serve the Lord. I was constantly challenged by professors, other students, and most importantly God’s Word. In a world that wants to draw our eyes away from God, Emmaus’ focus on education and spiritual growth is refreshing.
First and foremost Emmaus Bible College provided me with a very strong foundation in biblical studies that I am still utilizing every day and reaping the rewards from. Thanks to my double major that included Computer Information Systems I also was able to find where my strengths and joys lie in the information technology industry and develop a skillset to adapt and learn whatever is required from me vocationally.
I've used knowledge and skills from nearly every computer class I took at Emmaus in my ministries and job. The close relationships I developed with professors is what sticks out in my mind, though. I was grateful to have professors whom I could talk to, when I needed to, about school or anything else. It's hard to find people who will help you through your college years the way they did.
