Academics at Point Loma also include the arts and sciences, performing arts and professional fields such as nursing and social work.
Since undergraduate research is the backbone of the biology, chemistry, math and other programs, it’s no surprise that students meet such success upon graduating.

What I really liked about Point Loma was the amazing feeling of community I got the minute I walked on to campus. Everyone I meet here is seriously nice and so welcoming. Even though I am only a sophmore, I have met so many amazing friends and really helpful professors. It just seems like everyone here really wants you to succeed.
