'Loyola Marymount University is one of the largest Catholic universities in the West and one of 27 Jesuit universities in the United States. LMU's 142-acre campus, often listed as one of the country's most beautiful, sits on a bluff overlooking Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. Known as the University of Silicon Beach, LMU is next door to offices of Google, YouTube, BuzzFeed, Facebook, and other high-tech firms. At LMU, the city becomes an extension of the classroom, offering a rich diversity of culture, interests, access and opportunities. Founded in 1911, LMU is a comprehensive university offering 56 major programs and 56 minor programs for undergraduates; 46 master's degrees; two doctoral degrees; and 12 credential programs.

LMU educates more than 7,000 undergraduate students and more than 3,000 graduate and law students, who benefit from small class sizes, study abroad programs and one of Southern California's most diverse student populations. The undergraduate population includes students from almost every U.S. state and international students from Kuwait, Indonesia, India, China, Brazil, Canada, and many others. This diversity of cultures is a distinctive embodiment of LMU's commitment to human dignity, individual respect, and social justice that creates an essential environment for academic excellence and community for the 21st century.
