A Unique Opportunity, A Natural Synergy

In establishing the Becker School of Design & Technology at Clark, we are keeping this important academic asset right here in Worcester. Under the leadership of Dean Alan Ritacco and your current Becker faculty, we will retain much of the school’s core programming. As a student, you will benefit from a consistency in your academic experience. You also will gain additional opportunities through the combination of the strengths of our two institutions: Becker’s highly respected, specialized fields of study and Clark’s robust interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum and graduate programs.
