Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Clark University provides the full spectrum of ideal Liberal Arts education. Students will learn to think critically and consider a variety of perspectives before coming to conclusions. Clark's motto, "we do not categorize here," is largely practiced on campus by faculty, staff and students, and a sense of inclusion is immediately apparent upon arriving on campus. The intimate class size provides the opportune experience for making close, life-long relationships as well as establishing connections that will help on personal, academic, and professional levels.

Clark is a fantastic school, and its education program is one of the best in the nation. I am very happy that I went there

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

As a graduate student Clark does provide what I need, hence my choice. Like other campuses it also has its rooms of improvement. It is located in an area of town that is not the best in terms of safety at night. However, the school knowing this compensates this flaw with vigilant police patrolling and the escort service. Faculty are very diverse in research and are open to new ways of doing things if you ask. Their flexibility fosters adult learning and makes classroom discussions the more exciting, intense and loaded with intellect. I applied to Clark for its refreshing atmosphere of learning and so far I do not regret my decision and probably will never do.

Clark Graduate School is very rigorous but the atmosphere of diversity, challenge and assistance balances out the stress of classroom requirements.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I graduated from the Accelerated MPA Program at Clark University in May of 2015, this past year. The pros of this program are the value and flexibility. It is all night classes so I was able to work full-time in an area of career interest and the workload was manageable enough for working people. The elective courses offered were varied and there are many special courses which are 'one-time-only' which helped me customize my education. The faculty are predominately working professionals themselves who have been very successful in the fields in which they teach so the networking capacity is great, especially if you plan to stay in the Central MA and Greater Boston area.The capstone experience was very worth while and helped me practice skills I had gleaned in several different courses. The academics are not as rigorous as they could be, however. Since many of the faculty are working professionals, some of the courses are fantastic because of their relevance and the passion of the professors but others can be disorganized, not challenging, and uninspiring. While many of the elective courses are very good, the majority of the core curriculum is redundant and not engaging nor rigorous, which is disappointing considering they are required of all students. All-in-all, the value and flexibility more than make up for the inconsistency in rigor. I am happy with my degree and my education but that is because I put effort in to making it something worthwhile. If you are passive as a student you may leave feeling unsatisfied.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

Clark University's accelerated Master's in history program has been a challenging but rewarding educational experience. Most of the work is thesis and research related, therefore very independent, however, professors are very accessible and provide advice and encouragement every step of the way.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

The accelerated Master's in History program at Clark University has been a challenging, yet very rewarding experience. Completing the writing and research components of a History Master's thesis within one year is very difficult but the advisor and faculty support that Clark provides is absolutely incredible. Because it is a very small program, graduate students have individualized support and a great network of support.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

For the most part the faculty is excellent. Tuition is waved, however, because it is a small program there is very little funding available and classes are held during the day making it difficult to work. Also the location, Main st. Worcester, is quite undesirable, so that one is better off commuting from the Eastern half of the state than living in or around Worcester.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I have just begun my accelerated degree in Public Administration. The program is very valuable in that one learns a wide array of skills needed to succeed in non-profit management or local administration. I feel 10x more confident about my chances of finding a job that I enjoy-- and where I will feel capable and experienced in any task I am given.
