International Study & External Programs
Emerson College students don't just call Boston home. Emerson students call six other cities home—both in the U.S. and internationally.
International Study and External Programs is committed to providing Emerson students with opportunities to explore their academic goals and expand their cultural knowledge in international settings and global environments. The experience of living in a new country can alter how you view yourself, the world and your own country. In addition to Emerson-sponsored external programs in The Netherlands, Prague, Spain, Beijing and Shanghai, Austria, Greece, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., students can enroll for a semester of study through non-affiliated universities and other study abroad programs. Depending on your academic and professional goals, we will support you in finding a program suited to your needs.
David Griffin, Director, International Study and External Programs, is available to offer guidance and counseling to students regarding which accredited programs offered by other colleges and universities are acceptable. Please phone our office to set up an appointment (617-824-8567). Please note that approval of coursework for transfer, particularly within the major, is not automatic. Students must first submit specific information and receive course approval from the Registrar’s Office before enrolling at another institution to study abroad.
