Antioch University Los Angeles (AULA) is a place where individual spirit thrives and collective community grows.
Beginning with just twelve students in 1972, Antioch University Los Angeles now educates more than 1000 adult students each year. With more than 8,000 distinguished alumni, AULA has been honored to serve the diverse communities of the greater Los Angeles area for over forty years.
Our core values of social justice, service to community, and lifelong learning comprise the heart of our BA degree completion program and master’s degree programs in organizational management, education and teacher credentialing, non-profit management, psychology, urban sustainability, and creative writing. Partnerships with community organizations provide our students with unique experiential learning opportunities.
The first AULA campus catalog proclaimed, “We offer a student the opportunity to structure learning experiences out of the abundant resources available within the college walls and in the community outside the college; to accredit that learning as well as recognize the validity of past learning experiences that took place outside the academic structure and which are relevant to degree goals; and to integrate these past and present learnings into a coherent degree program.”
The AULA of today offers a unique, unconventional graduate and undergraduate education that is centered on the values of social justice, community engagement and life-long learning. In addition to classroom learning, students supplement their education experience with a variety of experiential learning options, including internships, independent study, prior learning and off-site seminars.
