Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2019

Loyola is a great university for the motivated/driven student, especially the graduate program. Many opportunities for skill growth and career advancement are available, but you must be willing to seek them out. Overall the environment is welcoming and collaborative, which makes for a safe space to learn, experiment and most important of all fail. Located a little outside of LA in a quieter neighborhood but close to the beach. A great school I feel fortunate to attend.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2018

Being a student these past two years at LMU, I am confident to say that it is an experience that constantly keeps changing my life. I have the chance to meet and cooperate with talented people from all over the world. In addition, I had the opportunity to intern in multiple companies and further my knowledge and skills on filmmaking. Furthermore, the courses offered by SFTV helped me shape my knowledge in a way that I can put it into practice.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2010

I received my Masters in Counseling from Loyola Marymount University in 2010. The Master's in Counseling is a degree in counseling with a focus on school counseling. Although the focus is on school counseling, this degree offers a number of classes and experiences dedicated to the practice of counseling which I found to be really beneficial. If you are interested in becoming a school counselor I would highly recommend the program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors are great. I'm in the second year of my program and I've yet to come across a professor that I thought was incompetent. There are plenty of classes that are offered in the evening (starting at 7:15) which works out well if you are going to work full time. Inevitably you will have to take 4 pm class though so be prepared for that. The program is really built so that you can get in and out. They don't do things to have you spinning your wheels wasting your time. I've really learned a lot in this program and I highly recommend it.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently attending LMU through the Teach for America extension program and I am being prepared to be a teacher through the Master's program in Urban Education. The program uses real life experiences that happen in the classroom which is helpful to us because we can put them to practice. Other programs use theory as a teaching method and this wouldv'e been hard because we are already teachers. As an acting teacher we cant throw theory at our students and hope that they understand it and work more efficiently. Working in low income schools requires actual practice to strengthen your craft as a teacher. The teachers at the Northern California campus are understanding that we are already in our profession and they help us reach our potential by guiding us, mentoring us, and even taking time to come and visit us in the classroom and give us first hand advice.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors are outstanding. Each professor has a different teaching style. Some are more laid back, some are better suited for kinesthetic learners, and others for the more traditional audio/visual learner. Overall, all of the professors know what they're talking about. The program is very inclusive and is alignment with the overall school commitment to social justice. Some classes are not offered in the evening so be prepared to adjust your work schedule. There will be certain classes that have over 20 people in them (which is not what I prefer) but there are usually just as many with less than 15 students to a professor. All of the professors are very accessible, happy and willing to support your overall career efforts. Other than that, this program is expensive. Try to secure outside funding and be thoughtful about tuition cost versus earning potential.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2018

If you were still hesitant on deciding what graduate school to go to I would say look no more and check out Loyola Marymount University as the place to go! From the moment I stepped foot into campus I felt at home and knew this would be the school I would attend. Professors are knowledgeable and always willing to help out. In addition, I have never felt this welcomed and content with the material I am learning in pursuit of my degree. I would recommend this school to everyone because of how practical and hands on the learning environment is! Trust me this school is one to be given an opportunity to check out! You won't regret it. :)
