A place where anything is possible
L.A. lives up to its laid-back reputation, but under the surface the city is a hotbed of activity. The world’s third-largest metropolitan economy, it’s also the entertainment capital of the world, an international trade center, and home to the 2028 Olympics. And when it comes to career exploration, the possibilities for internships and other professional and post-graduate opportunities are endless.
A boundless classroom
Engaging with L.A. is an important aspect of the Oxy experience. Our curriculum gets you actively involved in addressing real-world issues, often with one of our many community partners. You might spend a day on the Pacific Ocean trawling for fish eggs, tutoring young students in urban schools, or conducting geology fieldwork in the Mojave Desert. And professors tap into the city’s wealth of expertise by bringing guests from a variety of fields into the classroom.
Oxy in your off-time
Sandy beaches, palm trees, amazing weather year-round ... need we say more? But L.A. is also home to world-class museums, theaters and music venues; scenic hiking trails; impactful volunteer opportunities; and restaurants from every country on the map. Quite literally, there’s something for everyone.
