In a new partnership between Emerson College and Franklin University Switzerland, students now have the opportunity to pursue a Global BA in International and Political Communication. Those who complete this dual-degree program will earn both an associate’s degree from Franklin and a bachelor’s degree from Emerson.

Students will spend two years in Lugano, Switzerland, and two years in Boston, benefitting from the strengths and expertise of both schools. They will have access to numerous experiential learning and travel opportunities and will study American politics from an international perspective—gaining a nuanced understanding that sets them apart from those pursuing this area of study through a domestic lens.
