PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

Claremont is a setting like no other for the study of religion. Our name is synonymous with excellence in graduate religious studies. CGU programs are student-centered and characterized by personal attention and flexibility. Our faculty enjoys a national reputation for scholarship of the highest caliber. They are widely recognized for successfully combining traditional modes of scholarship with new methodologies in the social sciences and the humanities. The students and professors form quality, collaborative relationships in the Department of Religion. Here you will discover a department that allows a diversity of opinions about how religion ought to be studied, a place that reflects that diversity without reducing the differences, and a place in which many approached are advocated, pursued, and criticized according to the standards of scholarship. CGU also provides a uniquely supportive environment as a member of the Claremont Colleges consortium of seven independent, private institutions. [Read More]

With a student faculty ratio of 12:1, you will receive and intimate educational experience in our small seminar-style classes.
