close up of Raul Reis Welcome to the School of Communication! 

Communication is at the core of Emerson College’s mission. We are proud to house Emerson College’s first academic program, and for more than 130 years have been at the forefront of communication education in the country.

Communication is also at the core of modern life, and the School of Communication’s innovative programs will prepare you for a variety of professional careers in public relations, marketing, advertising, journalism, political communication, communication disorders and digital media. 

More than merely responding to the fast-paced changes in the communication industry, the School of Communication is leading those changes. Our faculty members come from the best newsrooms, agencies, companies and graduate programs in the world. What they will teach you in the classroom reflects and anticipates what is going on in the industry. 

An example of that is our new undergraduate program in the Business of Creative Enterprises. This major—one of the first of its kind in the country—prepares students to be the start-up minded innovators that will lead the creative industries in the 21st century.

Our new undergraduate program in Sports Communication trains students in the technology and management skills they need to become the leaders in the booming, multimillion-dollar sports communication industry.

Emerson College and the School of Communication are also well known for hands-on, experiential education. You will find here small classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in which our dedicated faculty will guide and mentor you, and prepare you for exciting careers.

I invite you to browse our School of Communication site and get more information about our programs, activities, faculty, staff, and the students and their work. 

The School of Communication is waiting for you with open doors, and we’ll also help open many professional doors for you as you embark in your new academic journey! 

Raul Reis,
