Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the program is well rounded and diverse, providing its student with competitive and knowledgeable skills to apply to the work field. Unfortunately the program is incredibly expensive and often difficult to manage.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

Loyola Marymount University created a partnership with Teach for America to give full-time teachers the ability to receive their teaching credential and master's in two years. This program worked around the full load of teachers to ensure efficient classrooms where we could learn to perfect our craft. One of the more challenging aspects was the money needed to pay for the program. Although given a financial aid award, it was challenging to manage the cost of living in Los Angeles while also paying tuition on a teacher's salary.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Law school is a competitive, stressful, and at times, grueling journey. The community that Loyola Law School, Los Angeles fosters is extremely supportive and the faculty is committed helping its students succeed.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is excellent for those of all theological interest, whether pastoral or academic. There is a diversity of classes offered, and all cater to working professional schedules. The professors are available often, and all have been encouraging and helpful in and out of the classroom. Although the degree is expensive, it is worth the price because Loyola Marymount offers an unparalleled network of scholars and professionals in any field of study. Our professors publish frequently and moderate highly acclaimed academic journals. Even in their expertise, they are happy to take on students to help them with these endeavors, giving them experience and exposure.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the School of Education Masters program at Loyola Marymount University: -Teacher attention and support are top-notch! -Workload is challenging, yet relevant to today's issues in education. -Campus and surrounding students emit a "pro-learning" environment where people are always studying (so I have to study too!) - Professors have impressive background and experience that brings the classrooms to life. The cons of the School of Education Masters program at Loyola Marymount University: - this is the FIRST year we must pay for parking - Could use more CSET examination support - Needs an Education club/network - Lack of seminars featuring special guests
