Since the opening of the first Jesuit schools hundreds of years ago, the educational philosophy of this religious community has stood the test of time, due in part to its commitment to both academic excellence and adaptability.

Change, for better or worse, is a constant. And in the wake of such continuous change – be it economic, political, social or even environmental – the Jesuit commitment to excellence invariably remains. It, too, is a constant.

LMU Extension is where these two constants meet.

At LMU Extension, we believe education is the solution to navigating a world of change. As such, our goal is to provide adult learners – at whatever stage of life they may be – with adaptable opportunities for the development of their imagination, conscience and intellect, whether it is on the campus, in the community, or online. With nearly 60 professional certificate programs and over 700 courses, in a variety of subjects and delivery methods, there is something for everyone at LMU Extension.

Let this Web site be your gateway to new opportunities, both professionally and personally. Let us help you open new doors, inspire new ways of thinking, explore hidden talents, and awaken a renewed sense of purpose.
