About California Lutheran University

California Lutheran University is a selective, comprehensive institution offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in the liberal arts and sciences and professional fields. Mentored by dedicated and accomplished faculty members, students pursue their passion and discover their purpose as they seek to grow as individuals. California Lutheran College was founded in 1959 on a ranch donated by Richard Pederson, the son of Norwegian immigrants. The college opened its doors to 330 students in September 1961 and held its first Commencement in May 1964.The mission of the university is to educate leaders for a global society who are strong in character and judgment, confident in their identity and vocation, and committed to service and justice. Founded in 1959, California Lutheran University is home to more than 2,892 undergraduate and 1,282 graduate students who come from more than 35 countries and represent a wide variety of faiths. Their dedicated, accomplished faculty works with small classes of students who are open-minded—about ideas, about people, and about faith—and are seeking to grow as individuals. Both in the classroom and outside of it, everyone at Cal Lutheran is committed to helping each student pursue their passions to discover their purpose, and follow that purpose to transform their community—and the world. The mission of the university is to educate leaders for a global society who are strong in character and judgment, confident in their identity and vocation, and committed to service and justice. Simply put, everyone is welcome here. Their students come from more than 35 countries and 30 different denominations and faith backgrounds. So no one is an outsider. This is a place for everyone.

They firmly believe their culture is greatly enhanced when individuals of diverse backgrounds and experiences become part of the University family and bring their talents and views to the academy. Cal Lutheran offers undergraduate, graduate and professional programs through the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Management, Graduate School of Education, Graduate School of Psychology and Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary. Thirty-six undergraduate majors and 36 minors are offered in the traditional undergraduate program. The Bachelor’s Degree for Professionals program offers degrees in eight majors. Graduate programs include doctorates in educational leadership, higher education leadership, clinical psychology and theology, and master’s degrees in education, psychology, business economics, information technology, public policy and administration, divinity and theological studies. At Cal Lutheran, they make a commitment to continue to learn how to live responsibly and justly on their campus and in their communities. Sustainability must be a campus-wide effort rooted in awareness that their immediate, local practices often have global implications. Contributions from the social and natural sciences, humanities, business, and education help to shape Cal Lutheran's self-understanding and provide new opportunities for service-based learning in their own campus environment. Cal Lutheran's main 225-acre Thousand Oaks campus (located between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara) is complemented by four satellite centres in Oxnard, Santa Maria, Westlake Village, and Woodland Hills.
