The Adirondack Semester at Clarkson University is a 15-credit domestic study program for undergraduates who wish to pursue an enriching off-campus experience in the heart of New York State's Adirondack Park. Students from any major who are committed to learn about environmental science, policy, economics and the human history and contemporary issues of the Adirondack Region are encouraged to apply.

The largest park in the contiguous United States has been called one of the great experiments in large-scale conservation and regulated economic development. Clarkson's mission is to deliver a blend of traditional and experiential education where by students acquire "real world" skills and content knowledge to analyze complex problems related to environmental, social and economic sustainability.

Students accepted in this program will learn from Clarkson faculty, all of whom are distinguished scholars who have worked in the Adirondacks. Students will be in session with Adirondack Park leaders, policy makers, residents and business owners and learn from peers in mentored team projects. The focus is on the Adirondack Park's social and natural sciences: its expansive wilderness, residents, governing agencies, economics, organizations and businesses that shape policies and commerce.
