Our academic focus is you

Helping you create an exceptional future is a responsibility we take seriously. That’s why Marymount California University gives all students the academic resources to discover what they want to do with their lives. From new programs to close faculty relationships, every academic experience at Marymount California is defined by our commitment to student success.

Where service and learning converge
At Marymount California service isn’t simply encouraged—it’s part of the curriculum. Science students work with the Palos Verdes Nature Conservancy. Business students mentor local high school students through Junior Achievement. Sociology classes take on a 5K for the Asian Pacific Community Fund.

Local to global—that’s our perspective
Marymount California University spans three different campuses. Overlooking the Pacific in Palos Verdes, our Oceanview Campus offers the traditional collegiate experience. In downtown San Pedro, our Waterfront Campus connects students to a growing hub of commerce and culture. In the small Northern California town of Lucerne, our Lakeside Campus offers professional development and community programs.

Our study abroad program offers a world of opportunity. Full-semester options include such places as Spain, China, Switzerland, Greece, and Thailand. After four years here, your world-view will span the entire spectrum—urban to rural, local to global.

Go Mariners!
As a member of the Cal-Pac Conference and NAIA, Marymount participates in men’s and women’s soccer, cross-country, track & field, golf, and baseball/softball. Men’s lacrosse is played as a club sport.
