At the GTU, the proximity of our member schools, multi-faith centers, and interdisciplinary programs creates a dynamic intellectual community. The GTU offers two degree programs, the Master of Arts (MA) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), as well as several certificate programs. Our member schools offer many other programs of study. GTU students are eligible to take classes across the GTU consortium, as well as at the University of California, Berkeley, just across the street.
The GTU intends to resume campus-based academic operations and in-person attendance requirements for new students enrolling in our PhD and MA-level programs beginning in Fall 2022, with flexibility for joining select courses via remote modalities as indicated by them prior to the start of term. To the extent that students elect to take advantage of this latter option, without compromising residency requirements related to their chosen program, the GTU maintains its commitment to hybrid learning. For more information, please consult our COVID Resources Page.
