It's a great program. I wish there were a greater number of choice available in coursework. There is a large focus on Higher Ed.

Pro: Claremont Graduate is the Ivy League of the West coast. The small, private university connects students with well-respected professors by keeping the student teacher ratio small. This allows professors to guide and train students throughout their professional degree. The campus and city of Claremont is beautiful. The streets are lined with trees. The city has a cute village to escape to that offers a small, town feel. Because the university is part of a consortium, students can take classes from other universities and partake in a variety of events at no extra costs. Cons: The pros do not come without an expensive price tag. There is some financial support in the form of fellowships, but no scholarship opportunities.

Not worth the cost! Middle class families will be in deep debt entering a Teacher Education program! Coordinators have NO clue how to create a vibrant program in today's market.

Made a big mistake with this school. The program costs too much. There is no value in this program. Outdated, Most of the current leadership need to retire. Disappointment

What a waste! This program is overpriced. Not worth it. Extremely poor coordination. Financial assistance is in student loans only. Only the wealthiest can attend and those with complete scholarships and grants. For the majority of American college students, forget it.

Disappointing. Tremendously overpriced. Program is outdated. New Coordinator is needed immediately. The Teacher Education program does not deserve a rating at all

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I am loving this program at CGU! I am having trouble paying for it. That would be the only con. I am praying that I can complete my PhD program to continue to teach and become tenure.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The classes offered are engaging and challenging, however, I would like to see more options, and smaller class sizes. I did not expect a graduate program to have classes with 30+ students. I would like more time and opportunities one-on-one interactions with the professors.
