At Emerson, we understand your focus because we share it. As one of the few colleges in the world devoted to communication and the arts, Emerson draws enthusiastic, creative minds. Centrally located in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, Emerson is internationally recognized in its fields of specialization, including communication studies; marketing communication; journalism; communication sciences and disorders; visual and media arts; the performing arts; and writing, literature, and publishing. With an eclectic mix of college students, young professionals, families, and artists, Boston is the ideal location for higher education.
Many residents are transplants, hailing from across the country and around the globe, all drawn to the city’s intellect, scenery, history, and local pride. Located in the center of downtown Boston, Emerson’s campus is steps away from the Theatre District and Chinatown, across the street from Boston Common, and a quick walk from the Financial District, Boston Public Garden, the Massachusetts State House, and Boston City Hall. No matter your interests- sports, politics, arts, literature, or amazing food- Boston is a city with something for everyone.
As an Emerson Graduate student, you will enjoy the luxury of working with professors who are experts actively working in their field and peers who are as passionate about their areas of study as you are. Flexible scheduling and format options offered through our in-person and online programs allow you to customize a path of study that will best help you achieve your educational and professional goals. Small class sizes and mentorship opportunities create a fruitful environment for building deep, meaningful relationships that will last long after your time at Emerson ends.
