Emerson’s graduate programs help you develop the professional and research skills necessary for leadership in the communications and arts fields.

Emerson College believes communication and the arts are fundamental to the growth of society. Our graduate programs are designed to help you develop the professional and research skills necessary for leadership in the communications and arts fields.

Emerson achieves its distinctive educational character by emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of communication and the arts and exploring how their principles operate in many settings. The accumulation and synthesis of knowledge in communication and the arts, and its applicability to many fields of endeavor, provide the central theme our graduates can use to realize intellectual and creative fulfillment, personal enrichment, and career objectives.

Emerson College educates graduate students who wish to re-enter the labor market, seek a career change, or strengthen their value in their professions.
