Master's Programs

Take your career to the next level with a master’s degree.

A master’s degree is about more than moving up the pay scale. It’s a chance to dig deeper into the subject that matters most to you as a professional. The University of La Verne grounds your learning experience in its four core values: ethical reasoning, diversity and inclusivity, lifelong learning, and community and civic engagement.

Why University of La Verne?

The University of La Verne granted its first master’s degree in 1960 with the goal of providing accessible, career-ready programs that offer value and purpose. We understand what busy students want and need: high-quality academic programs to build your professional knowledge and skills, expert faculty, and advisors to recognize and nurture your talent and ambition.

A Top-Tier Education

Our programs focus on practical skills that you can apply right away in your career. Highly interactive classes will keep you engaged with assignments that draw from your workplace, taught by faculty who have academic expertise and relevant real-world experience. Some of our graduates go on to careers in academia, but many more work as managers, educators, public administrators, and health care professionals – the everyday leaders that power our workplaces and neighborhoods.

Student Support

You’ll be assigned an advisor who will provide the support you need from admission to graduation. Meet with advisors at the beginning of enrollment to develop an academic plan, and regular check-ins will make sure you’re staying on track to complete your degree.


While a few of our master’s programs require intense focus and time commitments, most offer flexible class schedules and formats that allow you to balance school with work and personal life. Customize your education plan with full- or part-time enrollment, evening and weekend classes, in-person, online and hybrid courses, and multiple start dates per year.
