Equitable education in practice.

From urban education to student affairs, educational policy to human development, and quantitative evaluation to teaching and learning, our programs draw on dynamic instruction, multidisciplinary curriculum, and hands-on classroom experience to prepare graduates for successful careers. CGU’s School of Educational Studies believes a socially just nation should educate all its citizenry through networks of effective and accountable organizations that interact responsibly with families and communities.

At Claremont Graduate University, you will build your career upon nearly 100 years of educational tradition, learning to design and operate effective institutions that are socially just and publicly accountable. Our alumni are professionals from diverse cultures and backgrounds who have gone on to become members of Congress, university presidents, professors, researchers, superintendents, classroom teachers, data analysts, deans, and community leaders.

In our education programs, you’ll be able to design your own master’s or doctoral program to best meet your career goals on your own professional schedule. We also offer teacher education credentialing programs that prepare highly effective teachers who believe that education is a social justice enterprise.
