Our graduate education empowers students to elevate their careers, lead innovation in their fields, and make their marks on the world. With a Clark graduate degree in hand, the next level of success is within reach.

We promote an innovative model of engaged, participatory scholarship. Here, you’ll be asked to think beyond disciplinary boundaries as you participate in novel research, hands-on fieldwork, or eye-opening internships and capstone experiences.

Whatever you choose to study, you will be accompanied by a diverse, close-knit community of peers and supported by the guidance of exceptional professors. After graduation, you’ll embark fully prepared to think critically and creatively, to act collaboratively, and to engage responsibly with the wider world — as a scholar, entrepreneur, practitioner, business leader, public servant, activist, or wherever your aspirations lie.
