Emerson parents, welcome to the Emerson Los Angeles family!

For decades, the ELA program has helped thousands of students build connections, gain critical work experience, and break into the communications, arts, and entertainment industries. We are happy that your young adult has chosen to make LA home for the next few months, and look forward to helping him or her take the next step in their budding careers.

We want you to know a little more about the incredible opportunities that come with being the parent of an Emersonian in Los Angeles.

Throughout the semester, there are a number of programs and events that will help your son or daughter grow professionally and personally. In addition to pursuing an internship, your student can take advantage of numerous opportunities that will help him or her build a network in Los Angeles. There are professional development workshops held throughout the semester, community service opportunities, and programming intended to help your son or daughter transition into the next phase of their lives.

Emerson Los Angeles encourages parents to become involved in activities and events held at the facility. Whether that means attending workshops or major events, donating your time and energy by participating in panels or guest lecturing in a class, or making Emerson one of your philanthropic priorities—we appreciate your support. Don’t forget, ELA also has an Office of Post-Graduates and Professional Studies aimed at professionals and working individuals like yourself.

Thank you for continuing to support your student, the ELA program, and Emerson College. Take a look around and follow ELA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to get an idea of the type of programming your student is experiencing in Los Angeles.
