Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Loyola's CACREP accredited Mental Health Counseling program is one of a kind. Finally a school that understands the integration of spirituality, is an integral aspect in counseling person's to heal in mind, body, and spirit.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am confident that the education and training I have received from Loyola have set me up to succeed in the field of psychology. Politics can be frustrating in this program, as with any doctoral program, but Loyola's cohorts certainly feels more welcoming and "family like" than any other competitive program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Everyone from the faculty to the former students who have already graduated are willing to get involved and help you start the career you want to receive. The workload is manageable, even with a full time job and the area provides a wide variety or activities, living arrangements and transportation options.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola Psy.D. program is competitive and challenging. The training opportunities are outstanding! The faculty is supportive and friendly. While the class cohort is not diverse, you have an opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients in Baltimore, and the surrounding area.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

- Loyola has an outstanding commitment to diversity and preparing students to teach in diverse schools. They say they're about social justice, and they mean it. - The program is academically rigorous, especially the Methods classes. I knocked off two stars because of the next point-- - BEWARE. The grad school MAT program is being watered down with Required "hybrid online" classes. You must take them online. There is no other version available. They are required core classes. You meet once a month on campus, and the rest is online. The professor does nothing. At first there was just one required hybrid online class; now in fall 2014 there will be one or two more. They cost the same as real classes, you just get less for your money. - The availability of the professors is limited since many of them are adjunct professors -- freeway fliers split between multiple schools. You can get office hours, but the professors visibly wince. - Loyola has a parking problem. You're much better off living on campus. The commuter parking lots are a bus-ride away, so most people try to score parking places around the reservoir. The circling cars look like raptors. I've spent as much as forty minutes trying to find parking, no kidding. The neighborhood's not unsafe during the day, but it's iffy at night. The Baltimore area's a checkerboard: a bad neighborhood can be across the street from a good neighborhood, and you need to know where to avoid. The school will tell you what areas they will not fund off-site housing because of the hazards.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Best of the best. The pastoral counseling program is a top CACREP accredited program that other programs model theirs on. Fantastic education. 4 quarters of clinical work required. Intern sites say Loyola students are the best prepared of any of their clinical students.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

This program has really challenged me to think outside of what I thought I knew about education and educating. I have been provided the tools to aid in changing how we view education educators students and the community.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is small and allows for a lot of contact with the professors. Staff and the university are very helpful and supportive. Columbia, Maryland is not a great college town and can be somewhat inaccessible without a car. With a car, Baltimore and Washington DC are very nearby.
