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.

What Students Are Saying

Emerson is a magical school filled with people that are super-accepting in one of the most magical cities in the world. Unfairly stereotyped as a hipster school, it's surprising how many Emerson kids break the supposed stereotype. If you have a passion, this is the place to pursue it.
Brittany from Kyle, TX
Emerson is a great school for those who do well in a liberal arts setting. You will have interesting and intelligent professors and have some of the best resources and facilities at your fingertips. And you can't beat the location!
