Emerson alumni are significant contributors of talent––on screen, off screen, on stage, and in the executive suite––to the entertainment industry. For example, Emerson alumni have been associated with many of television’s most successful, highly acclaimed, and longest-running productions. From the days of Norman Lear ’44 and his All in the Family to Max Mutchnick ’87 and his series, Will & Grace, Emersonians have shaped the entertainment industry and influenced America’s values.

Our alumni have a major presence in the worlds of journalism, public relations, marketing, advertising, law, advocacy, government, health communication, and communication disorders.

As storytellers, artists, and scholars, Emersonians are natural observers of the human spirit. They are also technically astute and have embraced the changes in the communication and arts industries to emerge as leaders in this digital age. They continue to take advantage of change and take their fields in new directions.

If you come to Emerson, you will graduate with the broad knowledge, deep experience, and confidence required to forge a successful career in communication and the arts. And you’ll have access to Emerson’s renowned alumni network to help you along the way.
