The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) is one of the graduate schools of Harvard University, and is one of the top schools of education in the United States. It was founded in 1920, when it was the first school to establish the Ed.D. degree.

It offers three doctoral programs: the Doctor of Philosophy in Education (Ph.D.), the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) and the Doctor of Educational Leadership (Ed.L.D.). The Ph.D. program replaces the Ed.D. program, which enrolled its final cohort of students in fall 2013.[1][2][3] HGSE also offers thirteen masters programs. These include Master of Arts in Education, Education Policy and Management, Higher Education, International Education Policy, Special Studies, Technology Innovation and Education, Teacher Education, Mind, Brain and Education, Prevention Science and Practice, School Leadership, Human Development and Psychology, Language and Literacy, and Learning and Teaching.

Led by Dean Bridget Terry Long,[4] the mission of HGSE is to prepare leaders in education and to generate knowledge to improve student opportunity, achievement, and success. It seeks to accomplish this mission by operating at the nexus of practice, policy, and research.

It is associated with the Harvard Education Publishing Group whose imprint is the Harvard Education Press and publishes the Harvard Educational Review.[5]

The Monroe C. Gutman Library is the school's primary library for and one of its four main buildings.
