Based in Boston, Emerson College, the world’s premier center for the study and practice of communication and the arts, was the first East Coast college to establish a residential study and internship program in Los Angeles in the 1980s. The College’s new permanent facility, located on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, represents a significant commitment to the city and to the entertainment and communication industries. Designed by internationally renowned architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis Architects, the Gold LEED–certified facility had its grand opening in March 2014. More than 4,500 Emerson students have already participated in internships at renowned film studios, media outlets, marketing agencies, and related enterprises in LA.
