As the first all-graduate institution in the U.S., Clark has a long history of excellence in graduate education. And for more than 65 years, Clark’s School of Professional Studies has strengthened that reputation by delivering relevant, rigorous academic programs for professional learners and recent college graduates seeking to advance in their careers. With students from more than 90 countries and partnerships with 150 nonprofits and businesses around the world, SPS recognizes that today’s classroom spans the world.
We feature a highly flexible curriculum, designed to fit the busy schedules of working professionals. With five options of semester start dates, weekend and online courses, and professional experience credits, our students can accelerate their studies in a timeframe that suits their needs.*
Clark believes strongly in the power of applied knowledge — learning by doing. The SPS curriculum is firmly grounded in practical application and hands-on opportunities. SPS faculty are exceptional educators with experience teaching at top institutions around the world. They also are working professionals, and deeply connected to current trends and advances in their fields. This practical approach gives our students a head start in translating classroom knowledge into on-the-job impact.
*Please note that professional experience credit options are available exclusively for our Worcester campus degree programs.
