One of the first modern research universities in the US, Clark University is located in Worcester, MA, and has eight research institutes and centers. Clark is considered one of 40 Colleges that Change Lives by US News & World Report, as well as #27 on U.S. News’ list of Best Value Colleges. This private, nonprofit’s most-declared majors are Psychology, Biology, and Economics.
Clark is a diverse, dynamic community where everyone is involved in a variety of interesting activities, both academically and extra curricular. Although Clark is in a not-so-nice part of Worcester, it provides students with cheap living and great community service, volunteering and internship opportunities. Clark University offers the small liberal arts feel while providing research opportunities and has a heterogeneous population; something that's hard to come by in a small New England liberal arts school.
