The mission of the Graduate Division is to promote transformative graduate education at Loyola Marymount University, to celebrate the accomplishments of graduate students and the faculty who educate them, and to provide leadership in the establishment and communication of policies, standards, and processes related to graduate education and to the quality of life for graduate students.
Since its creation in 1950, the Graduate Division has worked closely with the University's colleges and schools to create innovative programs that meet the personal, academic, and professional needs of its students. As life-long learning becomes even more integral to individual success and social welfare, the Graduate Division remains committed to providing an array of forward-looking programs of great distinction and to creating an environment that enables students to realize their full potential.
The University's graduate programs are characterized by outstanding faculty, academic excellence, small class size, and attention to individual students. Though the graduate programs span a diverse array of academic disciplines and professions, they are uniform in their attention to education of the whole person, to conscious exploration of ethical issues, and to developing leaders in service to society.
Across its various schools and colleges, the University offers curricula leading to the degrees of Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.), Education Specialist (Ed.S.), Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.), Master of Science (M.S.), Master of Science in Accounting (M.S.A), and Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.), as well as to a variety of graduate certificates and credentials.
