Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I am enrolled in a Masters Program at the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University in Chicago. I was, at first, hesitant about pursuing an online degree, but have found the experience to be worthwhile. The classes are highly interactive and promote engagement with both the material and fellow students. As a non-traditional student, I have found this program to perfectly suite my needs. Although, I am not engaged in the "campus life" that Loyola and Chicago have to offer, I love the city and would recommend this school to anyone! -Andy

The social work department seems to have a lot of very knowledgable faculty and people with real life experience in the field. The advisors are WONDERFUL.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Everyday, (even on the stressful ones), I remind myself of how lucky I am to be going to Loyola for medical school. The staff, faculty and students are all so supportive, friendly and helpful. I am getting a wonderful education and I am very happy and fulfilled. Come to Loyola if you can!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola graduate nursing program is a very highly rated and rigorous program. The staff and professors are very supportive and the school uses technology to the fullest with optimizes online classes, especially for adult students. The cost of living, however, is very high and there do not appear to be a lot of scholarship opportunity available as a general rule. The quality of education, however, outweighs the cons and I can't see myself going anywhere else.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Loyola University is an excellent program. I have been very happy thus far, but their financial aid is limited. The graduate body is more diverse than the undergraduate and the faculty is excellent, although not totally accessible.

Graduation Year: 2014

I think Loyola provides an excellent Clinical Social Work program. I have enjoyed all of my coursework so far and feel that the faculty and staff provide essential resources and support. I would definitely recommend their Social Work program.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program in business is very focused on the Jesuit ideals of giving back to the community, which I feel is a unique way of viewing a business world that tends to be profit seeking and cold. The staff and professors are great. The downside is that it is a private school so tuition is high, and the city which it is in means higher cost of living.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

The program was a great experience. I was able to learn so much about the administrative side of healthcare and was able to apply my knowledge in the real world. I would highly recommend it to any one changing careers or looking to move to a different side of healthcare.
