Study Abroad with Clark University

Studying abroad/away expands credit-bearing educational opportunities beyond the Worcester campus by providing students with academic, research, internship, and cultural opportunities in over 50 programs around the globe. Students begin the journey by attending a Study Abroad 101 Information Session and the fall Study Abroad Fair. Program/location-specific information is available via the drop-down below. After attending the info session and reviewing the programs, students are ready to discuss their plans with their Faculty Advisor and Study Abroad Advisor and narrow their program selection to one that best matches match personal and professional goals. Come by for Drop-In Hours, call 508-793-7363 to schedule an appointment, or email if you have questions.
