Global BA in International and Political Communication

In our International and Political Communication program, you will study topics in issue advocacy, electoral politics, nonprofit communication, public diplomacy, crisis communication, and politics and law.

During your two years in Boston— with the golden dome of the Massachusetts State House as your backdrop—you’ll benefit from Emerson’s outstanding reputation and faculty expertise in the field of political communication, and you’ll earn a BA in International and Political Communication. By completing internships and getting real-world experience—such as working on political campaigns or leading award-winning diplomacy and civic engagement projects—our students go into the world prepared for success in any political career.

You’ll also spend one optional summer in Sydney, Australia, or Kasteel Well, The Netherlands. With this optional summer interim in one of these incredible locations, you’ll be able to deepen your knowledge in topics such as intercultural negotiation, sports communication, and global perspectives on public relations.
