Student & Graduate Reviews

1.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2017

I can't speak for other Master's programs offered at the school, but the IMC program was the biggest waste of time. You are essentially forced to take the same course over and over, material is repeated, format is the same (heavy focus on group projects and case studies) and half the courses listed in the course catalog are never even available to take. The program is antiquated and professors are extremely out of touch, especially with digital marketing and newer media. The undergrad programs are much more developed and cared for, but the graduate program seems like a complete afterthought. The large majority of my classmates expressed their disappointment and frustration with this program but it only seems to be getting worse. I would suggest saving your time and money and look at other schools to receive a quality graduate level education in marketing.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

I thought it was a very comprehensive program in a city that offered countless opportunities. The only down side I would say is that they don't require you to work in all settings before graduation which I think would have been immensely beneficial.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2006

Emerson is a uni where diversity is celebrated. It's an environment that cultivates a plethora of unique ideas and perspectives and celebrates the entirety of that spectrum. It truly is a beautiful tapestry woven on campus.

The faculty at Emerson college is great. Classes have had their ups and downs but overall it's been alright. Career services is really helpful. There are few options for graduate students for study abroad programs but not as many as undergraduates have.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently working toward my MA in Publishing and Writing at Emerson College. The hands-on experience and practical learning style adopted by the college has helped me feel prepared to tackle the job market. Emerson is very accessible and has class almost exclusively at night to accommodate those students who have a full-time job. I always felt as though I had a network of support and amazing connections with Emerson.

Emerson's graduate program offers excellent opportunities and connections for its students, and the small program sizes allow for plenty of networking within your own program. The social options are often limited to undergraduate students, but there are still plenty of chances for graduate students to interact with each other and with the school.

The professors are phenomenal, they all are passionate about what they teach and have experience in the field as well. You can make some great connections either through faculty or classmates at the program.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Emerson is extremely passionate about this program which makes it easy to be passionate as well. They legitimately want us to learn and succeed and the professors are top quality and inspirations day in and day out. The only cons are that is that it is a tuition driven college so the tuition is very high with very little financial aid/scholarships other than federal loans in a city that has high living expenses as well.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2010

Great town to be in school though the cost is unrealistic for many people and financial aid was not very far reaching.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The Health Communication program is interesting and the faculty are quite knowledgeable. The program, however, is not commuter-friendly, despite claims that it is.
