BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
As  an undergraduate, you can be a part of something amazing. We call it the Marymount experience––Classes that are comfortable, not crowded, with an average student to instructor ratio of 18:1; a learning environment that is state of the art, with “real world” professors who are truly invested in your education; and a University that values sports and recreation as an essential part of collegiate life, with plentiful opportunities for both.


The Four-Year Scholars’ Pathway Track

In a first-of-its-kind opportunity at Marymount California University, students may graduate in four years and receive diplomas for both bachelors’ and masters’ degrees. The Four-Year Scholars’ Pathway Track begins in the fall semester of 2017, complementing the existing Five-Year Pathway option.  Participating students may pursue an undergraduate degree in business, criminal justice or psychology, and then in their junior year, students may begin coursework for a graduate degree in business (MBA) or a Master of Science in community psychology. The total units for each combination vary from 146 to 160 units, and summer school enrollment is necessary to complete the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in four years.

The Marymount California University graduate programs were developed with the busy, working professional in mind.  The flexible class schedule, including evening, weekend and online courses, means that you can reach your career goals while also balancing work and life. You can also earn your degree quickly – the 46-unit Master’s degree programs are designed to be completed in just six flexibly-scheduled semesters.


ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
Students have a choice of concentrations within the Associate degree programs to explore their options and ensure solid preparation for a major at the Bachelor’s level.
