What Students Are Saying

CGU is an amazing school and they have the best faculty I have ever seen. They are always opening opportunities for students to network and meet other students as well as professionals outside of the Claremont Consortium. Their programs are top notch, in any of their schools.

The university includes social justice and transdisciplinary (interdisciplinary) studies in its curriculum. Because I have the opportunity to learn on a deeper level and how each discipline is interconnected, the awareness I gain is not just in my area of study. These things promote lifelong learning, personal growth, and an awareness of others and the world we live in.
Claremont Graduate University is a small campus with big university resources. It has small classrooms that allow you to truly connect with your professors and fellow classmates. It is an innovative and creative place that encourages students to explore and research topics beyond their own field.
