At the Marlboro Institute, you won’t just live in Boston; you’ll be plugged into it. In a metropolitan area with more than 300,000 students and more than 80 colleges and universities, you get to take part in the energy of what we consider to be the best college town in the country. Centered in Boston’s historic Theatre District, you can immerse yourself in performances at world-class venues such as the Boch Center Wang Theatre and Charles Playhouse; fascinating exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Science; history and culture at sites around the city like the Boston

tPublic Library, the Freedom Trail, and Fenway Park; 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; theater groups; production houses; nonprofit organizations; healthcare institutions; tech startups; literary journals, like our renowned Ploughshares; and more. Some of the amazing places our students have interned and worked include:

> Arnold Worldwide

> The Atlantic

> Boston Ballet

> Boston Celtics

> Cannes Film Festival/American Pavilion



> Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Your experience will be grounded in real-world, hands-on action. We are a community of individuals who support and empower one another—inside the classroom and beyond it. Here, you will have the chance to collaborate with classmates from both within and beyond the Marlboro Institute and directly contribute to the success of more than 100 student clubs, organizations, and activities.
