Emerson College is liberal arts college focusing on communication and the arts located in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1880 as a "school of oratory," Emerson still focuses largely on communication, just through 26 majors that culminate in a Bachelor of Arts, Science, or Fine Arts. The college also features an interdisciplinary studies degree and a competitive honors program. Students can take advantage of the study abroad program at Kasteel Well in the Netherlands where students work, live, and study inside of a 14th century medieval castle, as well as the Emerson Los Angeles campus, which is an award-winning facility. The BFA in Comedic Arts is the first degree of its kind in the country.

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.

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!
