Demographics

By knowing our student demographics, employers can better understand what sort of roles they should recruit HGSE students for.  Here is some basic information about this year's class.  For more in-depth data, please view the Incoming Student Demographics document in the right side bar.

There are 652 students in the 2017-2018 master's class with a male/female breakdown of 77% female and 23% male.  Students of color represent 31% of the class.  Average years of experience is 4.5 and average age is 28.3. Twenty four percent of the class are international students.  K12 schools, higher education and non-profits represent the 3 largest sectors in which students worked prior to HGSE.

Our 3 largest programs are the Education Policy and Management program, Human Development and Psychology program and International Education Policy program.
