Superior Academics

When you study at Clemson, you learn how to succeed.

Over 54 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students at Clemson, enabling everyone to engage with peers and professors in a meaningful capacity. With a variety of opportunities for experiential learning, Clemson students immerse themselves in different cultures, join the workforce between semesters and walk away from Clemson with strong examples of advanced research to show potential employers.

Agribusiness Addie Stone discusses class topics with her professor in his office.

“You are not simply a number at Clemson. I have conversations with my professors. I have gone on school trips with them. I have texted them my concerns and my successes. They actually care about what happens to me.”

“I’ve always found focus when it comes to social justice, civil liberties and advocacy. Through organizations and internships that Clemson offers, I could get involved in something that fed those interests and helped them grow.”

English major Thomas Marshall speaks with another student in professional attire.

“Clemson is not Clemson without the people in it. I know Clemson people talk about it like it’s the best place on Earth, but it really is. It’s hard to put into words. It’s truly the care and the passion that everyone has that make Clemson special.”

Computer science major Thaddeus Major walks beside Watt Innovation Center with a friend.

“I knew I was in the right place after my first Clemson football game. The people, the sounds, the smells, the sights; it was so much bigger than I ever thought it could be. That first feeling of stepping into something bigger than yourself and being a part of that is something I will never forget.”
