Why choose Loyola for your degree in counseling or counseling psychology? Loyola's counseling programs emphasize applied research and professional development training that integrates social justice principles.

Our students understand that advocacy and innovative counseling approaches are required to address the serious mental health, educational, and career outcome disparities facing many disenfranchised populations. 100% of our full-time faculty for these programs are persons of color, each with active research labs examining pressing social issues while providing opportunities to collaborate with students.
