When you take part in one of Emerson’s semester-long exchange programs at one of our strategic partner institutions, you’ll not only get to work towards your degree requirements while immersing yourself in exciting cities such as Barcelona and Hong Kong—you’ll get to experience the city like a local. In order to qualify, students must be in good academic standing and have completed their first year at Emerson.

Places are limited so students should speak with Corey Blackmar, Associate Director, Internationalization Initiatives, for further information.
