Academic life at LMU is intense, illuminating and powered by real-world learning experiences on campus, in our vibrant Los Angeles community and around the world.

At our seven colleges and schools, bright and motivated students work with exceptional scholar-mentors to take on new challenges, explore fresh perspectives and make exciting discoveries about the world and themselves.

The LMU academic experience starts with a centuries-old Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person through a comprehensive grounding in the sciences, arts and humanities. What makes the LMU learning experience extraordinary is the wealth of hands-on opportunities:

  • At the School of Film and Television — ranked #8 nationally by The Hollywood Reporter — undergraduates shoot short films on the same Red One cameras used by industry pros.
  • At the College of Business Administration, Entrepreneurship students majors take product ideas from Kickstarter campaigns to fully funded startups.
  • At the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, students present original works and research in genetics, animation, choreography, environmental engineering and more.

Whether in class, at an internship in L.A., or while conducting summer research abroad, LMU students know that what they are learning and experiencing today will help get them exactly where they want to go tomorrow.
