Through the Integrated Marketing Communication (M.A.) dual-degree program with Emerson College, Wheaton students who qualify for the program begin by taking two graduate courses at Emerson in the summer after their junior year and may be admitted to the program at that time or at the beginning of their senior year. Wheaton students then take two courses during the summer after their Wheaton graduation and two full semesters at Emerson in the year following their graduation from Wheaton.

For admission to the program Wheaton students must have a cumulative Wheaton G.P.A. of at least 3.0 at the time of application. In the summer after their sophomore year, students are urged to complete an internship in communications, which may be arranged with theĀ Filene Center for Academic Advising and Career Services.
