Academics

Jesuit leading small class

A world-class education starts with a challenging and dynamic academic program. At LMU you will find opportunities to work outside your comfort zone and realize your full potential, both in the classroom and through experiential learning opportunities.

Our small classes mean that you will get the personal attention and support needed to succeed. With an average class size of just 21 students, you will develop one-on-one relationships with faculty and peers that will keep you engaged and excited about learning.

Additionally, hands-on learning opportunities (such as internships, leadership training, and study abroad programs) round out your education by allowing you to apply your classroom knowledge in the real world. What better way to prepare for the situations and challenges that will face you when you graduate?

Here are just a few of the ways that LMU offers a truly personalized learning experience:

... in the classroom 

Ask students what they like best about LMU, and they will tell you: it is the one-on-one relationships with both peers and professors. Our average class size is just 21 students, so be prepared for instructors who get to know you from day one.

... beyond the classroom 

Spend a semester in China, hone your skills as a business leader, or help dig a well in Central America. Our mission to educate the whole person extends beyond the classroom with exciting programs that elevate and enhance your learning experience, including Alternative Break trips, study abroad opportunities, Air Force ROTC/Aerospace Studies, Institute for Leadership Studies, and Academic Community of Excellence.

... and beyond LMU  

The connections you make while at LMU will endure the test of time. And our close-knit community of alumni will help you get started in your profession with thousands of contacts in fields ranging from television production to space engineering. Explore our network alumni further via our Alumni Community and LMU Alumni on LinkedIn.
