When you come to Emerson, you become part of a creative force. You add your voice to a community of independent minds searching for new ways to learn, to share, to engage with the world—and to change it for the better.

Our classrooms are settings for exploration and debate as well as scholarship. They are not just desk-filled rooms; they are also studios, stages, and even sidewalks, all places for self-discovery.

As an Emerson student, you will immerse yourself in experiences that extend across campus. You will discover places where you can laugh, play, or lounge. It’s all here—a complete life at Emerson—where you will find other wonderful and unique people to both learn from and inspire.
