About

Welcome to Pepperdine University

A RICH TRADITION OF INSPIRATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Pepperdine's heritage is rich in community service. It begins with George Pepperdine's founding vision for a leading University committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.

In this spirit, the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) continually provides innovative programs and opportunities which meet student and community needs for scholar-practitioners, such as:

  • Founding the Center for the Family
  • Partnering with outreach programs including the Union Rescue Mission
  • Creating the first one-year master of arts in education with teaching credential program
  • Pioneering today's cutting-edge online master's and doctoral programs

GSEP embraces students and faculty from diverse backgrounds and perspectives who come together in person and online, share a common mission both with each other and the school, and continue to do so as active professional alumni.

This unique combination of individuals united by a singular purpose of service, supported by an institution of vision, makes the GSEP community a successful and powerful catalyst in improving the human condition.

Accreditation

From the University's beginning, the discipline of education has played a prominent role in the academic program of the institution. With the growing emphasis on improving educational techniques in the public and private school systems statewide, Pepperdine University met increasing demands for leadership and transformed the existing Department of Education into a professional School of Education. The school was formally established on January 1, 1971.

In 1951, a master's degree in psychology was offered for the first time, becoming the genesis of what eventually evolved into the Division of Psychology in the School of Professional Studies. In January 1981, after the decision to phase out the School of Professional Studies was made, the Division of Psychology became part of the Graduate School of Education. In March 1982, the Graduate School of Education officially changed its name to the Graduate School of Education and Psychology.
