Support Emerson

Global Engagement

Give to open the world to students.

Emerson students seek not only to become 21st century forces in communication and the arts, but also to use the skills they acquire in those fields to engage with the world around them—like the Communication Studies students who travel every year to Rosarito, Mexico, for the annual Rediscover Rosarito public diplomacy project. From our state-of-the-art facilities in Boston, Los Angeles, and the Netherlands—to internship programs with partners across industries and nations, we prepare the next generation of idealistic, media-savvy students to bring their stories to the world.

Give voice to students and faculty so that they can thrive in the culturally boundless world of the 21st century.

Emerson is grounded in real-world, hands-on action—and that applies to the whole world. We seek to give our students a broader global perspective through civic engagement initiatives at home and across the globe and study abroad opportunities, including:

  • Global Pathways Programs: Global Pathways Programs like our Public Diplomacy Workshop in Rosarito, Mexico; Prague Summer Film Program; Digital Marketing Trends of Business and Health Promotion in Ghana; Salzburg Global Media Academy; Screenwriter’s Lab in Patmos; Writing Place and Distance in Ireland; and much more.
  • Community Engagement Initiatives: Community engagement initiatives like The Elma Lewis Center for Civic Engagement, Learning, and Research; Emerson Urban Arts; and our pipeline programs for Boston-area high school students like EmersonWrites.
  • Co-Curricular Opportunities: Co-curricular opportunities like the Emerson College Polling Society, the Emerson Launch entrepreneurial program, WERS, The EVVYs, and Ploughshares.
