Emerson College Reviews
My four years at Emerson gave me great friends, helped shape my worldview, and greatly contributed to my career trajectory. The amount of opportunity there, both in and out of classes, is endless. The Emerson connections aren't a myth and the name is recognized outside the film/TV industry as well. I was a marketing communications major and I can't count how many times people in the marketing/advertising industry called out, recognized, and asked me about my school during internship interviews and networking events. After participating in an internship for credit at a Boston agency during my senior year, I received a job offer right before graduation, and I've been very happy there since!
The years I have spent at Emerson College in Boston have been the best years of my life! The Boston Campus gives you the opportunity to live right in the heart of Boston, across from Boston Common! All of my teachers have been engaging and are experienced in their field. Course offerings are plentiful and interesting and I have easily been able to shape my schedule so that it works around my preferences. The friends and the connections I have made, I know, will have great impact on my future career. The option to spend a semester abroad or at the Emerson LA campus is another huge plus for this college. I am very much looking forward to my semester in LA next year. I can not say enough good things about Emerson. I feel as though this school has truly set me on the path to a successful career.
Emerson's Film Culture is really strong! The major projects are very professionally run by upperclassmen. If you really want to work on set it's only a matter of time before the opportunity presents itself. Don't take any opportunity for granted. I only wish that Freshmen Foundations Production class challenged Freshmen to make more films and taught more skills of Production, such as editing for Premier.
