    What will you do ?

  • Some colleges are dedicated to providing students with a traditional liberal arts experience. Others give students a great deal of control over what they learnto focus almost exclusively on building crucial knowledge and skills for career success. Clark University combines these two approaches into one life-changing academic journey.

    Clarks pioneering model, LEEP (Liberal Education and Effective Practice), fuses liberal education with high-quality opportunities to explore the world and address real issues in authentic environments.
