Our online and professional certificate programs, continuing education courses and other programs of learning are facilitated by leading scholars and professionals, and balance traditional academic study with necessary practical training.

Recognizing that jobs and education are inextricably linked, each program is uniquely tailored to enable learners to update their skills and knowledge, advance their careers, and assist with a desired change in profession or vocation. And, to assure that each program continues to meet the high standards of education expected from Loyola Marymount, as well as the demands of society, each of our programs are continuously reviewed by University faculty, administrators and community leaders.
