Study in the USA with Doctoral programs at Clemson University

Clemson University is a science and technology-oriented public research university known internationally for its emphasis on collaboration, focus, and a culture that encourages faculty and students to embrace bold ideas. Its teaching, research, and outreach are driving economic development and improving quality of life in South Carolina and beyond. Clemson is a high-energy, student-centered community dedicated to intellectual leadership, innovation, service, and a determination to excel.

Our 1,400-acre campus in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains is at the center of the dynamic I-85 corridor between Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, GA. Surrounding the campus are 18,000 acres (7,285 hectares) of University farms and woodlands devoted to supporting our research interests.

A warm campus environment, great weather, and recreational activities offered by proximity to both the natural environment and large cities are a part of your Clemson graduate experience. The city of Clemson, a college town with a full-time population of around 17,000, is less than an hour’s drive from the larger cities of Anderson and Greenville, and just 12 miles from I-85. The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport serves Clemson with connections to all parts of the nation and locations around the world to conveniently accommodate your travel plans.
