The School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University is a place where education professionals will find opportunities for dynamic, field-based research within a real transdisciplinary academic environment.
We know the best way to prepare great educators is by applying theory and research to existing challenges in the field: real-world experience. Practice-based learning is at the heart of our research approach—you’ll take a broad-based, hands-on approach to educational practice that will enable you to tackle the most pressing challenges facing the field of education.
