At Clarkson, you’ll join 3,000 students who learn and live in our close-knit residential community complemented by nationally recognized career services, research projects, award-winning extracurricular programs and outstanding recreational opportunities. Our relatively small size encourages personal attention and interactions between students and faculty members.

You’ll choose among 50 rigorous programs of study housed in three schools: the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, the School of Business, and the School of Arts & Sciences, which also includes outstanding professional programs in the health professions.

As a Clarkson student, you’ll enjoy extraordinary opportunities to pursue faculty-mentored research. You’ll gain professional experience through internships and co-ops with corporations and government organizations, and broaden your perspective through a wide range of study-abroad opportunities.
