Global and Immersion Experiences

An Adventure for Every Student

Clarkson undergraduates have unique options to learn in off-campus settings, from study abroad programs with partner institutions all over the world to short-term trips led by Clarkson faculty members. Closer to home, we offer the Adirondack Semester and the Washington Semester. 

Global Experiences

As a Clarkson student, you have a wide variety of global opportunities, regardless of your program of study. You can choose from short weeklong programs to semester or yearlong excursions. Select from:

  • Study abroad with partner institutions.
  • Research at partner institutions.
  • Global Business Programs.
  • Service learning trips.

We have formal partnerships with many universities across the globe, and courses are taught in English.

Global & Immersive Experiences

We value our Golden Knights having a global perspective. Many of our students choose to have international experiences during their time at Clarkson. Options include:

  • Traditional semester or full academic year study abroad programs are available at one of our 55 partner institutions in 28 countries.
  • Global Business Programs are three-week trips that take place right after the spring semester ends.
  • Our proximity to Canada gives our students a great opportunity to take courses in Canadian Studies. Classes usually involve traveling frequently throughout the semester across the border to cities like Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto.

Hear From Student's

Studying abroad in Sweden allowed me to experience a culture without the filter of a screen or book. I could dive in and taste the food, talk with the locals and learn through the participation of traditions and customs. Studying abroad also allowed me to travel all across Europe. Whether it was solo traveling in Italy or cruising through the Baltic Sea to Russia, I was thoroughly humbled and grateful to have had the experience. It will be something that I never forget.
