Our undergraduate and graduate programs are taught by faculty who are among some of the most noted scholars and teachers in their fields. The members of our faculty are known for their ability to blend the practical with the theoretical and to inspire our students to see their future work as teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists and higher education professionals in the Jesuit traditions of transforming our society through service, intellectual interrogation, and social justice.

The School of Education is very proud to be able to offer our students life-changing experiences in Chicago, Rome, Italy and many destinations in between. Our balanced view of seeing and attending to the needs of communities right in our backyard while also focusing on international venues makes the Loyola experience a unique and awe-inspiring one.

As you view our website you will undoubtedly see our School’s commitment to our students’ academic, spiritual and social formation. You will also see that we strongly believe in blending actual hands-on experiences in schools and community agencies with challenging academic work.
