Claremont Graduate University educates superb economists, artists, mathematicians, and managers who are able to engage in great conversations that matter - conversations that are civil, humane, and value diversity in many dimensions. These are conversations that aim to foster a better world.
Our graduates have expertise, appreciate multiple perspectives, rethink conventional approaches, and work effectively in teams. Our graduates care about more than financial success and social standing. Our tradition is students as apprentices meaning, really, students as colleagues. Furthermore, CGU pioneered transdisciplinary doctoral courses, seeking to dissolve the barriers among disciplines.
Claremont has a unique blend of intimacy and community, of high academic standards and transdisciplinary provocation, and a concern for making our world a better place. This blend is what some of the world’s ablest graduate students demand as well as what some of the hardest problems require.
