Guided by our values, vision, and principles, the College of Educational Studies (CES) commits to develop critical scholarship and skillful leadership that inspires and respects individuals, serves communities, strengthens diversity, and ensures a just society.
The CES faculty, supported by four national accreditations, strives to make a more just world through their teaching, scholarship and collaboration with local communities on various civic engagement initiatives. The College of Educational Studies offers undergraduate education degrees, teacher credentials and graduate degrees including a Ph.D. in Education. CES has multiple unique degree offerings in teacher education, special education, school psychology, school counseling, and leadership. The Ph.D. in Education program began in 2007 and is considered by many to be the first step for Chapman University’s path to national stature.
