IDCE Graduate Admissions
Thank you for your interest in Clark University and the IDCE Graduate Master's Degree Programs. We are happy to have prospective students visit the IDCE Department.
Visitors have the opportunity to meet with professors and students, tour the campus, and attend a class.
Each year the IDCE department hosts Information Sessions, an Open House in the Fall and a Visitor's Day in the Spring. We strongly encourage you to visit during one of these planned events.
However, if you are unable to plan your visit around an IDCE Admissions event, please know that it is most beneficial to visit when classes are in session to ensure students and professors are available. Please see Clark's Academic Calendar to learn when classes will be in session.
So that we can arrange the most appropriate meetings for you with our IDCE
community, please also email a copy of your CV or resume and a brief summary of your interests to firstname.lastname@example.org.

You may want to search online for hotel specials through websites such as www.hotels.com or contact one of the following, which are all within 20 minutes of the campus. Some area hotels offer discounts for the Clark community, so be sure to ask when calling if any special student rates are available:
