Westwood College was established in Los Angeles in 1999, and since the very beginning has been recognized as an institution that offers high quality education in the form of twenty diplomas, associates, bachelor’s, and master’s programs. Westwood College-Los Angeles offers careers belonging to four different programs: technology, business, and justice. In any of these areas you can find various course options, ranging from animation to criminal justice. Westwood is known for its fast-track, career focused training.
What does this mean? It means that students are engaged from the very beginning to learn and apply the fundamental skills required for successfully performing in a professional environment. Unlike most colleges and universities, Westwood’s approach enables its students to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in no more than three years. The foundation of a strong education lies in the relationship between students and teachers, but also in the interaction between students and the market; this is why the college strives to prepare their students to deal with real life situations by complementing theory with practice.
This approach has proven quite successful, and two accrediting agencies, the ACCSC and the ACICS (both recognized by the United States Department of Education) have already accredited the college’s courses; this has opened the door for Westwood students to federal loans and grants that the US government only gives high-quality educational establishments.
