•Jesuit: educating men and women for others, who are prepared for lives filled with meaning and purpose.

•Los Angeles: LA is an inspiring city, and LMU is located in the heart of it. Being here means access to internships in every imaginable field, proximity to beaches and mountains, and of course, that endless sunshine.

•Personal and dynamic: We offer small class sizes to encourage intellectual engagement and growth. Hands-on learning experiences such as internships (1,500 available), leadership training and 60+ study abroad programs round out your education.

•Focused on your success: 97% of LMU grads have a positive outcome within six months of graduating (such as employment or in graduate school).
