Our Programs

Join Our Community of Learners

Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education serves more than 9,500 educators around the world each year through more than 90 programs for early childhood, K-12, and higher education professionals

Chaired by HGSE faculty and grounded in the latest research, our Professional Education programs are designed to make direct impact on the practice of education professionals, the work of schools and institutions, and the lives and learning of students. 

We believe that through exceptional professional education that is responsive and relevant to the challenges practitioners face, we can equip and empower educators and institutions around the world to improve their practice in service of their students, schools, and communities. Through transformative adult learning, we elevate student learning.

We invite you to learn more about our professional education opportunities and look forward to welcoming you to a future program.
