Just 35 miles east of Los Angeles, Claremont Graduate University offers an intimate, high-touch academic research environment. Our unique brand of graduate-only scholarship transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries to foster the creation of new knowledge—and new ways of seeing and improving the world.

Globally recognized faculty-scholars lead our specialized programs, which may be tailored to your specific interests and career aspirations. You’ll receive practice-based training and individual mentorship that prepares you for successful employment and enables you to effect positive social change. Due to global health circumstances, we are planning to conduct most spring semester (2021) classes through virtual learning. We look forward to a return to campus in the future and seeing you in Claremont—a vibrant location that offers year-round sunshine and an array of dining, entertainment, and outdoor activities.
