Students of Eastern Nazarene College have a variety of unique academic opportunities across a variety of degree programs to grow and learn with faculty and peers to prepare for a career in the Boston area and beyond.
The annual Academic Symposium, sponsored by the Provost’s Office and the Honors Scholar Program, celebrates the intellectual mission of Eastern Nazarene College research and provides opportunities for students and faculty to share their research with the ENC community. The Symposium is the college’s premiere academic event and features research from a cross-spectrum of academic disciplines, from English to physics, and from psychology to mathematics.
ENC science students have opportunities to engage in numerous research experiences directly with faculty and in the Boston/South Shore area.
