Faculty & Research

At HGSE, you will learn from and work alongside the foremost minds in education research, policy, and practice.

The faculty of the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) is a singularly impressive group of scholars, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers actively working to improve the state of education worldwide. As an HGSE student, you will work with a faculty that includes MacArthur Prize Fellows and Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers recipients making extraordinary contributions to fields like early childhood development, classroom technology integration, and school leadership.

Imagine taking a course on state education policy taught by the former secretary of education for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; analyzing policy interventions in developing nations with a World Bank economist; learning multiple intelligences theory or universal design from the people who invented them; or discussing college affordability with a presidentially appointed member of the National Board of Education Sciences. If you want to make a lasting and positive impact in the lives of learners, you will find capable and compassionate mentors in the faculty of HGSE.
