    The Arts & Communication Pre-College Program offers challenging one, two, three, and five-week summer programs for high school students. Programs are intensive, fun, and teach competitive, practical skills in communication and the arts. A few select programs can also be completed for academic credit.

    Part of Emerson College's mission statement is to educate our students "to assume positions of leadership in communication and the arts and to advance work that brings innovations, depth, and diversity to these disciplines." Instead of being hindered by this pandemic, our staff and faculty intend to use this unprecedented time to teach you the skills to communicate your ideas, express your feelings, and tell powerful stories– when it is more important than ever.

    *Basic knowledge of the current industry practices and requirements 
    *Portfolio or audition materials for your college applications
