Professor looking over homework with student in library

At Clark, we don’t just teach our students. Instead, they participate in research and discover new knowledge themselves. Here you’ll develop solutions. Turn your findings into action. Change our world.

It’s never too early to make a difference. At Clark, you can take part in research from the moment you arrive on campus. Working with world-renowned researchers in the lab, in the field, or in the archives, you can discover new knowledge, reframe traditional research questions, and transform your passions into solutions to real-world problems. Clark undergraduates have published their findings in top-ranked academic journals and received prestigious grants and awards recognizing their work. From mining communities in Mongolia to rare books at our own Goddard Library, the world is waiting to be unlocked. It’s up to you to find the key.

I am conducting research on predicting crop yields from high-resolution drone imagery. I am hoping this experience will help me find work in the GIS/remote sensing field after I graduate, and later to get into a Ph.D. program.

Applying what I learned in the classroom to my research has given me more confidence. Seeing how all the book formulas and equations can be applied in real life gave me an insight into physics that cannot be provided in a classroom setting.
