You can pursue your intellectual interests and professional goals in one of eight graduate departments. Our core programs provide rigorous training in theory and method as well as in content. In addition to discipline-specific training, we also offer six interdisciplinary concentration—American Studies, Continental Philosophy, Early Modern Studies, Hemispheric & Transnational Studies, Media Studies, and Museum Studies—across all our programs. Partnerships with other departments and schools at CGU also allow for interdisciplinary degrees in areas like Arts Management and Applied Women’s Studies. Students can also pursue degrees combining theory and praxis in such areas as Museum Studies, Archival Studies, and Arts Management.
Claremont Graduate University is committed to supporting you in all areas of your graduate student experience. From degree planning within your department and writing assistance to tech support and disability services, academic support is available through a variety of campus resources covered by your student services and technology fees.
The Student Success Center (SSC) provides an array of co-curricular programs that enhance the graduate student experience and help you develop the knowledge, skills, and capacities to enable success at CGU and beyond. The SSC offers workshops, one-on-one consultations, and social events to equip students with the necessary tools for academic and professional success.
