University of Oxford

Oxford University

As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford is a unique and historic institution. There is no clear date of foundation, but teaching existed at Oxford in some form in 1096 and developed rapidly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. During the 20th and early 21st centuries, Oxford added to its humanistic core a major new research capacity in the natural and applied sciences, including medicine. In so doing, it has enhanced and strengthened its traditional role as an international focus for learning and a forum for intellectual debate.

Emerson College

Emerson College

Since 1880, the visionary leaders who built Emerson College have been inspired by the highest educational aspirations. They have envisioned higher education as more than pure scholarship, but rather an immersive preparation for meeting human needs and launching brilliant artistic careers. Think about this: Emerson was founded as a school of oratory, elocution, and dramatic art—and now marvel at how the College has flourished over the years as a hub of educational innovation. Emerson offered the first collegiate-level program in children’s theater (1919), created the first course of journalism in the 1920s, offered professional training in speech pathology in the ’30s, developed one of the first undergraduate programs in broadcasting and broadcast journalism, launched the first educational radio station in the 1940s, and later added a television station in the 1950s.
