About Eastern Nazarene College (ENC)

The Eastern Nazarene College (or ENC) was established as a holiness college in 1900 and relocated to the current location - Massachusetts in 1919.
It is a private, coeducational college of the liberal arts and sciences in Quincy, Massachusetts near Boston, in the New England region of the United States.

Broadening Our Vision
In 1955, a new era began for ENC, when the College decided to commit itself entirely to higher education. Over the next thirty years, ENC expanded its bachelor’s degree offerings, and many new undergraduate majors were added to the academic catalogue. In addition to the growth in baccalaureate programs, several new graduate degree programs were added between 1964 and 1981. Accelerated degree programs were established for working adults in 1990. Eastern Nazarene also expanded into other Quincy locations toward the end of the 20th century, with the creation of the Adams Executive Center and the Old Colony Campus on Old Colony Avenue. To meet growing demand for continuing education, the College founded four new Adult & Graduate Studies satellite campuses in 2008.

Who We Are Today
Today, Eastern Nazarene College thrives as a Christian college of the liberal arts and sciences in a beautiful and historic seaside city. Professors at ENC are all committed Christians who hold degrees from top-ranked research institutions, receive national recognition for their academic achievements, interact with students on a personal basis, and are professionally active in Boston and beyond. Students at the College are also highly engaged, and have recently been involved in such activities as research at Harvard, study at Oxford, music tours in the South Pacific, caring for sick children in Uganda, outreach to the homeless of Boston, and ecological conservation on the South Shore. Many have discovered their life’s purpose while at ENC, and graduates of the College experience extraordinary success in fields as diverse as astrophysics and urban ministry, as Eastern Nazarene College continues to serve God, the Church, and the World by providing a quality liberal arts education to students of all ages.
