See for Yourself

Why study abroad?

Clarkson students in Italy for a global students exchange programWell, there’s the old axiom that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. That’s certainly true for our students, but they’ve found something else: A first-person perspective on things that matter.

Whatever you’re interested in, you have to interact with it. You can read about it, study the work of others, but to advance, you have to be the one who grapples with it. Analyzing data collected by someone else is fine — for that someone else.

If you want more than that, Clarkson is for you.

As a leading research institution, Clarkson has nearly a 120-year history of developing advanced analytical skills. Our reputation, our unique qualifications and proven expertise led to academic exchange agreements with universities around the world. Clarkson students don’t have to apply for admission to spend a semester or full academic year at numerous institutions in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and the Americas.

We have continued to develop and improve these agreements to make sure Clarkson students get a first-person perspective and first-hand experience in their fields. You’ll be able to seek out new information, make sense of it and explain why and how it will change things.

These days, we’re constantly bombarded with data and we have to make sense of it all. Your ability to interpret information will determine how far you can go. At Clarkson, you’ll go farther.

The world is waiting. Why are you?
