Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola's Social Work program has a lot of great opportunities. Many of the faculty members are really great people who take out the time to help and guide the students. That being said, students do have to do a lot of self advocacy for field projects etc. Overall a great program!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Through the course of study in the Masters of Science in Medical Science Program at Loyola I could not have been happier with the genuine support of the faculty and staff. Their constant dedication was above and beyond what I had expected for any masters degree program, offering their advice late into the evenings and over weekends, it truly was an aspect of my education that cannot be overlooked. The faculty coordinated with local community partners to secure volunteer and internship opportunities for the students. Additionally, the small class size of 55 students added to a more personalized and well-rounded education. The location of Loyola University Chicago added a new worldly perspective to my education and has ultimately affected how I will interact with a very diverse population in my future career choice. Perhaps a single negative aspect that I could point out is the fact that with all of the support from the faculty, I was encouraged to do many extracurricular activities to expand my resume. This made it difficult to stay ahead of the curve in the classroom. Time management skills will be integral to success in this program. Overall, I am very grateful for the opportunity to have attended such a life changing program and encourage others to strive for a successful academic career as well.

The faculty are amazing and want you to succeed with your career goals. The school is located in a not-so-safe neighborhood.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

Loyola University of Chicago provides a great education, however, some of the adjunct faculty did not have great teaching skills. The social work school has a great reputation which has been helpful career wise.

Degree: Social Work

Loyola's Masters of Social Work program is rigorous, but I feel it will provide me with a solid foundation to go out in to the real world and work in the field of social services.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

As a graduate student, I feel that Loyola University - Chicago's Social Work Program is a great opportunity for people to get a unique education. The staff is committed to getting to know their students and making sure they have future work opportunities. I specifically chose Loyola because of a sub-specialization it offers in migration students. Through this program, I have been able to study the migration issue at the U.S. - Mexico border as well as complete a field placement in Chiapas, Mexico. Through this program, I will be able to better serve and relate to migrant populations in the U.S. I recommend Loyola to anyone interested in social work and looking for an education that will prepare them for the workforce.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Loyola University - Chicago's Social Work Program is a competitive program, especially around the area of Clinical Social Work. Furthermore, it has a strong staff that builds relationships with the students and cares about the future work opportunities the students can obtain. I selected Loyola's Social Work program because it also has a sub-specialization in migration studies. Through this specialization, I have been able to take courses on the U.S. - Mexico border and complete a field placement in Chiapas, Mexico. The only con is that it is a commuter school where many students do not live on campus. Therefore, it can be challenging at times to feel a part of the campus. It takes the self-initiative of a student to become a part of campus activities and social groups.

Pros of the program are great professors, resources and the clinical foundation of the curriculum. Cons of the program are the facilitation/coordination of the internship program.

Loyola works directly with CPS to give grad students practical field experience. Loyola is very expensive, but it offers a great quality of education coupled with a respectable name.
