U.S. News & World Report has ranked Emerson College #3 in innovation among Regional Universities (North) in the latest college and university rankings for 2023, representing a four-position rise over last year.
The Most Innovative Schools are ranked following a survey of university and college officials who nominate up to 15 institutions demonstrating innovation in curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology, or facilities. Emerson also rose two places in the Best Value category this year over last. U.S. News ranked the College in a tie for 13th place overall in its category.
Last month, The Hollywood Reporter again ranked Emerson’s film program #6 in the country, pointing to the success of Emerson alums, including directors Daniel Kwan ’10 and Daniel Scheinert ’09, who dominated this year’s awards season with their Everything Everywhere All at Once. The publication also highlighted the Global BFA in Film Art program and Hollywood industry internship offerings.
