Online master’s programs are coming to Claremont Graduate University this fall to provide even more students with access to the “CGU experience.”

In collaboration with Noodle Partners, one of the country’s fastest-growing online higher education providers, the university has announced the scheduled launch of its first three online master’s degree programs for the 2018 fall semester.

“As one of the nation’s leading graduate-only institutions, CGU is continually striving to stay at the forefront of graduate-level education,” said Provost Patricia Easton. “By teaming up with Noodle Partners, we have been able to create dynamic, flexibly-designed programs that will provide our students with the tools they need to be the problem-solvers of tomorrow and build meaningful careers.”

The university’s entrance into the world of online higher education will focus on the following three areas:

Enrollment for the new programs is now open.

The Master of Science in Evaluation & Applied Research equips students with advanced methodologies for conducting evaluation at the intersection of theory and practice, emphasizing on-the-ground practice.

The Master of Science in Information Systems & Technology is designed to prepare outstanding IT professionals within the field of information systems and technology by teaching the concepts, skills, and applications necessary to create software and systems that optimize human performance and produce positive societal change.

The Master of Science in Marketing Analytics will prepare students with a depth of expertise in marketing analytics, empowering them to contribute to business value by effectively identifying, analyzing, and communicating about data within a context that supports marketing decision-making.

“We are thrilled to help Claremont Graduate University reach a larger group of students online who will enjoy the university’s renowned faculty, small class sizes, and practice-based research,” said John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners.

Katzman said that “the university’s superior reputation and impressive national ranking” has made CGU an ideal partner for Noodle Partners in creating these inaugural in-demand online programs.

Easton agreed.
