Marylhurst has a unique faculty of practicing professionals and scholars. Most, in addition to their teaching, are working professionals who bring real-world experience into the classroom. All are recognized experts in their fields, and are great sources of commentary on an array of subjects in the news. For example, our faculty's expertise ranges from the study of aging and the therapeutic benefits of art and music to business law and astronomy.
