The School of Communication sits at the center of the 21st century, preparing leaders to shape commerce, public opinion, health behavior, and communication innovation. Through projects, campaigns, co-curricular activities, and practical demonstrations of effective communication, our talented and passionate students encounter an immersive environment where they learn from one another as well as from acclaimed professors.


Emerson faculty members have advanced academic degrees and professional experience. They've worked in newsrooms, built websites, consulted for healthcare organizations, worked with hearing impaired children and adults, served as corporate public relations managers, developed crisis communication plans, helped political candidates shape and communicate messages, and created advertising campaigns.

Emerson is a place where theory and practice are connected; where knowing and doing are part of the same continuum, and where passion and cognition nurture each other’s growth.
