Welcome to Emerson College
Charles Wesley Emerson founded Emerson College in 1880 as a small school of oratory. Despite its humble origins, Emerson has grown to be an innovative leader in communication and the arts. Our mission today reaffirms our founder’s dedication to inspire students to create and communicate with depth, honesty, courage, and passion, both as professionals in their fields and as informed and articulate participants in society.
Emerson College is distinctive. On our Boston campus (located across from Boston Common in the midst of the Theatre District), at our Los Angeles campus, and in our fourteenth-century castle campus in The Netherlands, you will find students who are filled with energy, creativity, and desire. You will also find faculty members engaged in providing rigorous curricula designed to blend the importance of liberal arts with theory and application in the various disciplines. The Emerson family is dedicated to engagement and discovery. We invite you to join us in that exploration!
