LMU's Catholic Inclusive Education program is currently on hiatus and not admitting students at this time.

LMU's Catholic Inclusive Education program prepares teachers and administrators in Catholic schools to become leaders in supporting parochial school students with exceptional needs. Courses are designed to provide a foundation in both general and special education with a specific emphasis on inclusion within the Catholic school context. Applicants to the Catholic Inclusive Education program must hold a valid teaching credential, be currently teaching fulltime in a Catholic school, and meet several other admissions criteria.

Qualified teachers in Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles receive substantial financial assistance.
