Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Loyola Marymount University boasts a surprisingly diverse Graduate program. Each of the theories and events we learned about were further supported by the classroom particpation of one of our classmates. With colleagues hailing from Uganda, East Los Angeles, India or elsewhere it was easy to put what we learned from our esteemed professors into everyday practice.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The benefit of this program is that it will help me either as a future educator or even work person. Everything I will learn in LMU's Master of Educational Studies program will empower me to make a difference on the lives of young people in the classroom and outside of the classroom.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

A huge pro for me is the availability of evening courses. I am a full time professional and the courses work with my work schedule. Another pro is the ability to meet with my advisor at least once a semester to review my class schedule and course work load. I cannot speak to the social scene as I do not live on campus nor do I socialize much on campus. The faculty are for the most part working professionals and thus can speak greatly to the current trends/challenges/bright spots in the field.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty and staff are well-educated, well-informed and care for each student. They are dedicated to both the field of Art Therapy as well as the development of each student in the program.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program of School Counseling has many good components. The materials we are taught are things that I can see myself using in the future in my ideal field. However, there are some faculty who make me wonder if this program was the right choice for me.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

While the classes are not too rigorous, LMU is a great place to find a community that is supportive in every way. I have met the most amazing professors who genuinely strive to not only teach material but also invest and mentor students who desire to foster meaningful relationships. This program of school counseling has taught me so much about myself and how I have the potential to make a difference in the world. Great job LMU!

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I have started my master degree at LMU and it is an amazing school. It is safe and a really pretty college. The only cons I have for it is the lack of scholarship for graduate student even if you are a research student. School is expensive, I am still paying my undergraduate degree and now that I am living in California it is an expensive state. I know I should have chose a less expensive state but the reason I picked this program is due to 2 things The professor I am working for is a professor whose work I admire. I read his papers and work while I was an undergraduate student and I wanted to join his research group. The staff is friendly and helpful. I scheduled to see the campus without even being admitted and they treated me as a student. I want this $1000 to help me with the school fee.

I have really enjoyed my experience in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering at Loyola Marymount University. The staff and faculty are very supportive and encourage students to strive for excellence. Several professors have extended their assistance with networking opportunities.
