Graduate Admission


Our vertical urban campus is composed of a cluster of buildings near the intersection of Boylston and Tremont streets that overlooks the historic and pastoral Boston Common. The buildings house state-of-the-art teaching, production, and performance facilities, as well as several clinical laboratories. Our tours are led by current students, and your visit will include a meeting with your program liaison. We can also coordinate a class visit (excluding Summer Term). One week advance notice is required in order to schedule your visit.

Campus Tour

Experience our impressive facilities in person and get insight into graduate student life at Emerson College. Each tour lasts approximately one hour and is led by a current graduate student in your program of interest. Visits for most programs can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 11:00 am EST year-round (Note: Media Art and GMCA tours are at 3:00 pm EST during the academic year). You can learn why the current student chose Emerson, hear about his or her experiences in the program, and get tuned into life in Boston. You’ll also meet with your admission counselor who will discuss the application process, financial aid, and living in Boston. Please plan to be on campus for approximately an hour and a half. One week advance notice is required in order to schedule your visit.

Class Visits (excluding Summer Term)

With advance notice, we are happy to coordinate a class visit. Sitting in on a class provides you with further insight so you can fully understand the Emerson classroom experience. Stay for an hour, or stay the entire class— it’s another way to experience all that Emerson has to offer. One week advance notice is required in order to schedule your visit.
