2. Los Angeles
Culture, recreation, nightlife, entertainment — LA has it all. The city is rich in potential, including career, entrepreneurial, and internship opportunities. With the burgeoning Silicon Beach tech scene, the entertainment and arts industry, and business start-ups surrounding you, make LA your living, learning laboratory.
Through LMU’s Office of Career & Professional Development, students are afforded more than 1,500 internship opportunities annually in a variety of industries. As a result of their real world preparation, over 95 percent of LMU grads have a positive outcome lined up after graduation, such as employment or grad school.
Hailing from 90 different countries, nearly 10 percent of our student body is comprised of international students. Additionally, 36 percent of LMU students take part in one of our 68 different study abroad programs — a real chance to immerse oneself in a globally imaginative experience.
160 student clubs and organizations — a club for most every interest — and an excellent on-campus residential community (95 percent of first-year students live on campus).
Ranked in the top five percent in the nation for diversity (College Factual, 2018), LMU welcomes students from all cultures, religions and backgrounds. On-campus resources include The Academic Community of Excellence, the First to Go Program, and Ethnic and Intercultural Services. We are committed to bringing students together from all backgrounds, building a community that respects difference and encourages a global imagination.
Latin for “more,” magis is a cornerstone of the Jesuit educational philosophy. LMU challenges students to do more, to question more, and to pursue extraordinary goals in all they undertake, both on and off the bluff.
The LMU campus on the bluff is unmistakable for its beauty. It’s consistently recognized for having one of the most beautiful campuses, such as by The Princeton Review (#17), Conde Nast Traveler (#14) and Business Insider. Located in sunny Los Angeles, we also enjoy beautiful weather and are located in a safe residential neighborhood.
The faculty is student-centered, engaging, challenging, and accessible. At LMU, our student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1 and our average class size is 20.
LMU is highly regarded for academic excellence, ranked number 3 in the West by U.S. News & World Report and in the top 12 percent nationally by the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education. We offer more than 60 majors, ranging from business to liberal arts to science and engineering, to film, and visual and performing arts.
