Emerson College was founded in 1880 as a school of oratory. It’s now a liberal arts college focusing on communication and the arts that U.S. News & World Report lists at #7 in Regional Universities North. Emerson offers a study abroad program at Kasteel Well in the Netherlands where students work, live, and study inside of a 14th century medieval castle. The college was the first to offer a comedic arts major, although video production, marketing, and digital communication are the most popular choices for undergraduates.

Emerson College's Film Program is a great place for determined artists to find their voice and hone their filmmaking skills. The professor's are all very attentive and try their best to help each student get the education they need in any given class. Overall the academics and vibrant Boston cityscape make it a great place for students that know where they want to go in their careers.

Emerson is the school where you'll cry when you see the bill. You'll have to keep reminding yourself that this school is getting you where you want to be and they throw in so many extras along the way you'll get caught up in the experience and forget about the $50K tuition bill. The people you meet are all supportive and the few that aren't do not get too far
