Emerson’s groundbreaking FACE Lab utilizes infrared motion capture and eye-tracking technology to analyze how individuals with autism spectrum disorders produce and process facial expressions and tone of voice.

Emerson’s Journalism Production Center includes a news studio with HD cameras, green screen, professional sets, an HD control room, and digital production suites.

Emerson students have held internships at companies like Hill Holliday, Gillette, E! Entertainment Television, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Puma, Viacom, iHeartMedia, NECN, and more.

Emerson’s Global Pathways program allows students to spend the summer exploring a different country, earning course credits, and applying classroom learning to an authentic, real-world context. Program offerings have included: Australia, Austria, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Ireland, Mexico, The Netherlands, Northern Ireland, South Africa, and Spain.

More than 250 books authored by Emerson alumni have been published to date.

In just the last two years, nine Emerson alumni have won Emmy Awards.

Emerson owns more performance space than any other Boston institution—including our 1,200-seat proscenium-stage Cutler Majestic Theatre and art-deco (and originally a movie palace!) Robert J. Orchard Stage at the Paramount Center.


Emerson is centered in Boston’s historic Theatre District and one of the top 10 media markets in the United States. When the city is in full swing, you can immerse yourself in performances at world-class venues such as the Boch Center Wang Theatre, Boston Opera House, and Charles Playhouse; exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art; and ProArts Consortium classes at six other prestigious arts colleges. You will also be steps away from internships and job opportunities at global news organizations, publishing companies, advertising agencies, media consultancies, theater groups, production houses, nonprofit organizations, literary journals, and more.
