Enrollment Steady in Cal Lutheran’s Grad Programs

The pandemic and temporary move to virtual learning has not negatively impacted graduate program interest at California Lutheran University, a spokesperson for the college said, with enrollment remaining the same as last year at 1,225 students for the fall term. The Thousand Oaks university broke down its attendees: 440 in the management program; 540 for education; 200 in the psychology program; and 45 signed up for Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary at Berkeley. Twenty-two international graduate students from 11 countries, including Brazil, Kazakhstan and Russia, will be attending virtual classes too. “Generally, graduate students working toward a career goal while balancing other responsibilities are less likely than traditional undergraduates to hit pause because of a temporary move to virtual classes,” Rick Holigrocki, dean of the graduate school of psychology, said in a statement. He added that California Lutheran’s track record for having a strong graduate program helps as well. Students can look forward to new faculty members for the fall semester, including Kyle McIntosh, a former executive with Thousand Oaks biotech giant Amgen and Ventura outdoor clothing company Patagonia. McIntosh will teach master’s in business administration courses, the university said.
