GSEP offers 6 master's programs, 4 doctoral programs, and continuing education programs for working professionals.
The Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) is an innovative learning community where faculty, staff, and students of diverse cultures and perspectives work collaboratively to foster academic excellence, social purpose, meaningful service, and personal fulfillment.
As a graduate school within a Christian university, GSEP endeavors to educate and motivate students to assume leadership roles in professions that improve and enrich the lives of individuals, families, and communities.
At GSEP we embrace human diversity—which we believe to be the natural expression of God's creation—in our work to advance learning and service. GSEP advances, sustains, and advocates for multicultural proficiency.
The strategies for accomplishing this mission are:
- Promoting discourse that values each member's background, experiences, and perspective;
- Recruiting, retaining, and advancing diverse students, staff, and faculty;
- Developing curricular models for practice in educational and psychological environments; and reaching out to broader communities to promote understanding and facilitate solutions to diversity challenges.
Our spirit, energy, and actions will be an inspiration to education and psychology communities.
