The School of Education offers graduate programs in the following areas of study: Administration, Bilingual Education, Catholic Inclusive Education, Catholic School Administration, Reading Instruction, Educational Studies, School Psychology, Elementary and Secondary Education, Counseling, and Special Education. The School of Education also offers a doctorate in Leadership for Social Justice.

Mission of the School of Education

In accordance with the Mission of Loyola Marymount University, the faculty, staff, and students of the School of Education understand and declare our purpose to be the encouragement of life-long learning and academic excellence, the education of the whole person, and the promotion of service and justice for all. We commit ourselves to serving public and private education by fostering excellence inspired by the Jesuit and Marymount traditions of Catholic education.

Goals of the School of Education

The faculty, staff, and students of the School of Education strive to work collaboratively in a student-centered environment to be professionals who act to:

  • Value and respect all individuals
    We believe in the worth of each individual. We affirm the inherent dignity and value of each person as a child of God. Therefore, we believe that all individuals have the potential to be successful learners with unique characteristics and experiences that bring positive value and meaning to the learning experience.
  • Promote social justice

    We recognize the existence of social inequity, marginalization, and the different faces of oppression, and we commit ourselves to work actively for the establishment of a just and equitable society. While it is important to understand critically the structures, practices, and discourses that cause and perpetuate injustice, we also aim to nurture transformative structures, practices, and discourses that actively promote greater equity. This commitment challenges us to think with a global perspective, to embrace the notion of a preferential option for the poor, and to act with a conviction of equity.

  • Promote cultural responsiveness

    We recognize diversity as a strength, and we commit ourselves personally and professionally to serve culturally and linguistically diverse populations. These populations include those who represent cultural diversity broadly defined, including race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age. Among other valuable theories and approaches, we utilize sociocultural and constructivist perspectives in teaching and learning. We value these and other perspectives that promote active participation in learning as well as meaningful and authentic instruction and assessment and emphasize students’ cultural and linguistic background experiences.

  • Integrate theory and practice

    We strive to unite theory and practice in a reciprocal relationship that mutually informs each other. We are a community of reflective practitioners, guided by critical inquiry and social responsibility. We actively engage in educational research, including faculty/student collaboration. We affirm the use of technology in education as authentic, meaningful, and accessible to all learners.

  • Develop moral, intellectual, responsible, and caring leaders

    We are committed to the preparation of educators who will be leaders in the field and who reflect high standards of ethics and values. We seek to be, and to encourage others to be, women and men who have the intellectual skills to critically evaluate educational issues, have the moral conviction to respond as agents of change, and exhibit an ethic of care in the service of others.

  • Collaborate and share leadership across communities

    We believe in the value of working collaboratively with the districts, schools, parents, and students of the communities we serve to successfully educate all learners. We recognize, support, and promote the gifts and talents of community members and encourage their participation in decision-making processes.
