Academics at Clark
Looking for majors, minors…and LEEP?
Some of your college application essay questions may ask you what you'd like to do. Even the Common App may start to give you an idea of what you want to study. But only one of the top 100 colleges and best liberal arts colleges in Massachusetts will consider if you're ready to LEEP.
Liberal Education & Effective Practice (LEEP) is a Clark student's highly personal academic journey in which you'll build the skills to meet tomorrow's challenges and opportunities as you forge your own path at our University. From the moment you step onto Clark's campus, LEEP will be your constant companion, inspiring you to dive headlong into everything you do—whether you're interested in business management; psychology; the sciences; the social sciences; the humanities; the arts; geography, sustainability and the environment; or preprofessional options.
Clark offers you an open, dynamic educational environment where creativity and imagination are valued. Feel free to question conventional wisdom, explore breakthrough ideas and take risks. No matter what academic path you choose, you'll be challenged, engaged and pushed to be your best through LEEP.
Clark's pioneering model of higher education provides you with a highly integrated and personalized path of learning where you will:
- Orient yourself to University life through intensive introductory seminar classes, known as First-Year Intensives or FYIs, and cocurricular activities
- Explore your talents and career options through academic study and authentic research and work experiences
- Act on your long-term goals through projects that demonstrate your applied knowledge and skills as your membership and leadership emerges in communities of scholarship and practice
No two Clark students LEEP alike. Only you can answer the question: How will you LEEP?
