Clark University is a small New England research university that boasts exceptional undergraduate and graduate academics and innovative approaches to learning.
Located just outside of Boston in the town of Worcester, Massachusetts, Clark has made it onto numerous “best of” lists, including those generated by U.S. News and World Report, Forbes and Princeton Review.
One of Clark’s more outstanding features is its approach to undergraduate academics. With over 30 majors that include Psychology, International Relations, English and Business Management, Clark doesn’t just assign homework. Students actually undertake their own research and generate a substantial body of original work, which is presented campus-wide.
Other innovative methods at Clark include a “self-appointed” major and accelerated bachelor’s and master’s programs.
At the graduate level, Clark boasts a history of cutting edge research that attracts students from all over the world. Research areas at Clark have included biology, economics, geography, urban education, environmental science, holocaust studies and social change.
Clark isn’t only acknowledged for innovative academic approaches. Clark has also been acknowledged for its community service ventures. Students at Clark have logged some of the highest numbers of hours in local community service. There is even a service group that travels to Nicaragua every year.
Clark’s career services also regularly places students in internships and offers career-placement assistance.
With a small student body, the Clark community allows for maximum interaction with professors and peers. Most undergraduate and some graduate students choose to live on campus in one of Clark’s residential halls to take advantage of Clark’s student life.
Clark’s financial aid sources include grants, work-study, scholarships, loans and fellowships to those who qualify.
