Unique Educational Experience at Antioch University Los Angeles

Antioch University Los Angeles helps students with diverse educational, personal, and professional backgrounds complete their education as quickly as possible. Because many of its students are returning to school, it offers them the opportunity to earn credit for life experience. For example, students can earn up to 44 units of prior learning credits for career-related experience, technical training, and personal experience and as many as 135 transfer credits from courses taken at accredited colleges and universities.

The school offers bachelor's degree completion programs in liberal studies, applied studies, applied arts and media, urban communities and justice, and applied technology and business leadership.
