You don’t have to wait until you have enough time, money, or energy to pursue professional growth in your teaching.

More about us



The summer of 2019 Calvin's Graduate Studies in Education will be piloting a new schedule for the way we offer courses. The courses will be offered in a hybrid format with one-week intensive sessions on campus along with distance education work before and after the on-campus experience. The on-campus sessions for the five different courses will be scheduled for July. All courses will officially start on June 24, 2019, when participants will start course work required prior to arriving on campus. All courses will be completed by Aug 2, 2019. The instructor and course participants may agree upon an earlier date on a course by course basis. Learn more about our summer 2019 program.
