Global Partnerships

At Emerson, we are astutely aware that an education for the 21st century is a global education, and we have been making significant progress toward our vision for creating a global, borderless campus. This work is vital to making Emerson more accessible to more diverse populations and educating future generations of artists and storytellers.

Our global presence has grown exponentially in recent years. Between our Global Pathways programs, our new Global Portals Initiative, and our traditional exchange programs, Emerson now has a presence in six of the world's seven continents.

Global Portals will allow students without U.S. passports to matriculate to Emerson and earn an Emerson degree, while creating new flexible models for providing an Emerson education to undergraduate students around the world, and establishing Emerson as a recognized presence outside of the U.S.

Paris, France

Our partnership with Paris College of Art (PCA) is the first of its kind, and Emerson is the first U.S. college devoted to the arts, communication, and the liberal arts to offer an international bachelor's degree program in film art.

Lugano, Switzerland

Our partnership with Franklin University in Lugano, Switzerland, makes possible an undergraduate degree program in global communication and international business, and a combined bachelor's and master's accelerated degree program.
