Vice President for Academic Affairs & Chief Academic Officer Ed Feasel, signed an agreement with Claremont Graduate University to provide accelerated bachelor’s to master’s programs for Soka students in international studies, education/teaching credential, and master’s of business administration. This unique partnership creates an opportunity for students to begin work on their master’s program while completing their undergraduate degrees and using credits earned to complete their CGU MA degrees ​in shorter time.

Chang (Social and Behavioral Sciences), Ian Read (International Studies), and CGU Dean of Admissions Timothy Council.
