Winter Term Registration Now Open

Dear Emerson community,

I’m excited to introduce the course offerings for Winter Term 2020-2021 (December 10-January 8). New this year, Emerson students will have access to a broad selection of two- or four-credit courses, all delivered online over the four-week period.

Undergraduate and graduate students will be able to choose from 40 courses across every academic department, all taught by Emerson faculty. Classes will take place online, both synchronously and asynchronously, and at an accelerated pace, making this an excellent opportunity for students to catch up on credits for their program or get ahead and graduate early.  

Courses being offered for the first time include The Fiction in the Facts: Americans in Conversation about Race (SA310) and The Stories of Raymond Carver (LI421, LI625), and a two-credit class, The Future of Work, Learning and Everything (SA305). In addition, the Journalism department is offering two, 2-credit courses: Law for Journalists (JR250) and Ethics for Journalists (JR251).

For a full list of course descriptions and tuition information, students may refer to the email they received from the Registrar on October 4, or visit or Emerson Today. Registration is open today at

Housing – Students interested in on-campus housing options during the Winter Term can contact

The College anticipates that there will be some students who do not have an alternative housing option that may want to request staying on campus. Housing and Residential Education will have an application go live in mid-October for students with extenuating circumstances to apply to be housed on-campus during the winter session. In the interim, students may email with questions or concerns. 

I invite you to participate in these intensive and engaging courses this winter.
