Choosing Graduate Journalism Program In Boston: Emerson vs. BU vs. Northeastern

hemmerlexandrahemmerlexandra Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Hi all,

I recently got accepted to three Master's journalism programs in Boston: Emerson College, Northeastern University and Boston University.

I didn't think I'd get into BU or Northeastern, but I'm obviously delighted & grateful to have three amazing schools to choose from. It's been a dream of mine to study journalism in Boston, but I'm having a little trouble determining which program would bring the most value. Here's some context about the programs:

Emerson: 13 months, ~20% scholarship, small school
Boston U: 3 semesters, ~31% scholarship, large school
Northeastern: 2 years, scholarship TBD, small-sized classes in large school

My priorities are of course financial aid, but also overall program strength. I'm also an international student who's done undergrad in the US, so it's important to me to be at a school that's aware of international student needs in general.

Hope someone can share some insight on any one of these schools, or maybe add some perspective that I'm failing to consider at the moment.

Thank you so much!
