The School of the Arts supports cross-departmental academic programming in comedic arts and civic media. We also provide students with the extraordinary opportunity to learn their craft in professional-level performance venues, labs, and studios.

Center for Comedic Arts

Emerson's Center for Comedic Arts offers the first BFA of its kind in the country. Our Comedic Arts major integrates writing, performance, and production with courses that examine comedy from a variety of perspectives.

Engagement Lab

The Engagement Lab at Emerson College is an applied research and design lab that investigates and creates media and technology to reduce disparities in civic participation.

Performance Venues & Other Spaces

We offer a variety of stages, labs, and studios for our students to use in their creative work inside and outside the classroom.
