Teaching and Learning

Teaching and learning are at the heart of what we do at HGSE — and what our students will do in the world. In addition to their academic coursework, students can delve deeply into their own practice, building skills in learning design, curriculum planning, classroom management, and much more.

Non-credit January Term

During January term (J-term), HGSE students have the opportunity to augment their studies with unique, noncredit learning experiences, most of which are not offered during the regular school year. The non-credit J-term courses may include critical topics such as cultural intelligence, making transformative change, and race in America.
