Emerson College is a campus without borders. We believe producing inspired work requires a global perspective, which is why the Emerson experience isn’t limited to one city or even one country. This global mindset extends to the partnership between Emerson and Franklin University Switzerland, which grants students the unparalleled opportunity to pursue one of two dual-degree programs: a Global BA in Business of Creative Enterprises: Switzerland or a Global BA in International and Political Communication. Those who complete either of these programs will earn both an associate’s degree from Franklin and a bachelor’s degree from Emerson. In both programs, you will spend your first two years in Lugano, Switzerland, and final two years in Boston. Surrounded by the Swiss Alps and situated on its namesake lake, Lugano is not only breathtaking, but is also the ideal home base for the Franklin experience: a high-quality liberal arts education and an exploration of the world and its people. During your time at Franklin, you’ll study a broad curriculum, take liberal arts courses, and travel to other cities. The academic partnership between Emerson and Franklin is grounded in a mutual understanding and appreciation for both the liberal arts and an international experience. Franklin is a four-year American-style liberal arts university, well known for its immersive experiential learning program. Your time at Franklin will set you up for academic success at Emerson, allowing you to pursue your studies through a global lens.
