About Us

Where theory meets practice — and passion meets purpose

At Simmons, our goal is to prepare you as a scholar, professional, and leader. Rooted in academic inquiry and innovative application, our nationally recognized graduate programs reach this mission with degrees and certificates in five exciting areas of study — Behavior Analysis, General Education, Special Education, Liberal Arts, and Public Policy.

The centerpiece of this exceptional education? Our curricula. By integrating theory and practice, our programs challenge you to see more broadly and think more deeply. You enter into powerful new areas of learning while simultaneously developing the knowledge and skills you need to advance your career or change it altogether. 

For more than 100 years, Simmons has cultivated this progressive, yet practical, approach, infused with social justice values and a multicultural perspective. We’ll ask you to consider your unique contribution to your profession and the world. Then we’ll help you build the foundation to achieve it.
