Emerson is a community of independent minds that gives voice to daring ideas. It is home to exceptionally talented artists and communicators of every background who shape our society, culture, and future.

Emerson's award-winning programs in communication and the arts have always been anchored in a strong academic foundation in the liberal arts. Combining professional and conservatory-style training with a rich and diverse liberal arts curriculum, we enable students to examine the world across disciplines and perspectives, adding depth and intellectual perspective to their creative studies.

With the establishment of the Marlboro Institute, we have strengthened this commitment. Here, you will learn not only from your fellow students and acclaimed professors, but also from real-world experiences. In a world where media platforms and communication technologies are in almost constant flux, Emerson's unique combination of liberal arts and hands-on industry experience offers you the enduring lessons, foundational skills, and breadth of knowledge that will position you for a variety of careers.
