Our planet’s most pressing challenges don’t fit into neat categories that can be addressed in isolation — which is exactly why we invented our revolutionary transdisciplinary curriculum. At Clark, we form a passionate community characterized by creativity, bold thinking, and determination.
Create Your Future
IDCE’s graduate programs draw from nine research concentrations. Within your academic concentration, you will tackle projects that integrate domestic and international contexts and social and environmental issues.
IDCE also offers a major and minor in international development and social change (IDSC), and an accelerated B.A./master’s degree for Clark undergraduates who want to bring about positive change locally and globally.
Make Yourself At Home
Clark boasts a vibrant and diverse student body, with students hailing from more than 50 countries. As a graduate student, you will be warmly welcomed by our close-knit community, and supported by the many resources and programs available to help international students acclimate to life in the US and on campus.
