Join Us This Summer

One of Clark’s strengths is delivering education that provides a clear path forward, with the knowledge, skills, and experience you need to achieve your career goals. Clark University Summer Session offers undergraduate and graduate classes in a variety of disciplines, delivered in multiple modalities to provide flexibility to meet student needs.

Instruction is conducted by Clark faculty as well as other experienced instructors from other accredited institutions, along with industry leaders.

Current Clark students, as well as students from other institutions, are welcome to enroll.

Based on continued guidance from public health officials to protect the community, all Summer 2020 classes will be taught online.

A Word About Online Learning

Learning at Clark University is characterized by courses and programs that offer you challenging experiences, deep discussions, and world-class faculty. Learning online at Clark is no different.

In our complex, rapidly-changing world, the ability to learn, communicate, and create online is imperative for success. Online courses at Clark will prepare you to meet that challenge. Built by the same faculty who teach our face-to-face classes, in collaboration with education experts, our online courses develop rich and inspiring learning experiences.

When taking an online class at Clark, you won’t just be reading a textbook and taking a quiz. Faculty offer a range of materials including case studies, cutting-edge journal articles, documentaries, guest speakers, video lectures, and much more. You’ll engage with your instructor and your peers weekly in discussion forums, case analyses, and group presentations. You’ll collaborate on team projects and work on individual research. And above all, you’ll challenge convention and change the world.

How to Register

Summer Session is open to all: you do not have to apply to a Clark certificate or degree program to take summer courses. Simply register. Please note that graduate courses are open only to those with an earned bachelor’s degree.

  • Clark Students: Register via CUWeb. Consult with your academic adviser if you have questions about which course(s) to take and how they fit into your program requirements.
  • Visiting Students: Review application instructions and  apply here.

All visiting students should submit their completed form at least one week before the course starts to allow enough time to activate their Clark student record to access the course and resources.

Technical Requirements

To be successful in an online course, you will access materials and submit assignments in Moodle regularly. Moodle is Clark’s Learning Management System (LMS). It is your responsibility to ensure that you can do so. At a minimum, you will need access to the Internet and a supported Web browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari).

In general, you will be expected to submit assignments in MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF format (Clark provides MS Office at no extra cost if you need it). Unless the assignment specifically requires an alternate format, please be sure to submit in one of the above formats or the instructor reserves the right not to grade the assignment. If students need assistance with converting or formatting documents, they should contact the ITS Help Desk.

If you need technical assistance with Moodle, using your Clark accounts, or with software used for completing course assignments, contact the ITS Help Desk: email them at or phone them at 508-793-7745.
