Many of Clarkson's brightest students begin college without a specific major because they have broad abilities and a wide range of interests.
If you are this kind of person, University Studies may be the perfect program for you. University Studies allows you to investigate options during your first year. You take foundation courses from all four of our academic areas: business, engineering, liberal arts, and science. At the end of two semesters, you can enroll in any major and still earn your bachelor's degree in four years. A majority of our student declare a major by the end of their first year.
Clarkson offers over 50 programs of study from the Coulter School of Engineering, Reh School of Business, School of Arts & Sciences and Institute for a Sustainable Environment. Our historic strengths in business, engineering, arts, sciences, education and health sciences remain at the core of the curriculum. But these programs have also been combined into cross-disciplinary majors, such as engineering and management, environmental science and policy, and digital arts and sciences.
