Strong Truths Well Lived
Since its founding in 1852, Loyola University Maryland’s time-tested, distinctly taught Jesuit approach to education has been giving students the tools and developing the traits they will need to learn, lead, and serve in our diverse and ever-changing world. Loyola is everything a Catholic, Jesuit education should be: rigorous, values-oriented, communal, and spiritually uplifting. Our students graduate ready to meet the complex demands of today and to anticipate and adapt to the needs of tomorrow. Loyola affords students a transformative experience that allows them to embrace new perspectives, develop critical thinking skills, and become their very best selves: knowledgeable, capable, confident, and committed to changing lives—others’ and their own. With majors and minors in more than 40 academic fields, Loyola offers an undergraduate program grounded in the liberal arts, focused primarily on developing undergraduate students into well-rounded scholars and leaders who are distinctly prepared to succeed in every aspect of their lives. Our students come from diverse geographic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, which adds to the rich and varied experiences of our community. In addition, Loyola offers a variety of international programs, exchanges, and affiliations in countries such as Spain, New Zealand, Greece, Hungary, South Africa, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, and Australia. Loyola also has a strong community service program, Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program, and Division I athletic program. Loyola competes in the Patriot League, fielding teams in eight men's and nine women's sports. Graduate degrees at the master’s and doctoral levels are also available in a wide range of programs and areas of study. The university comprises three schools: the School of Education, the Sellinger School of Business and Management, and Loyola College, the university’s college of arts and sciences. Loyola also operates interdisciplinary Clinical Centers in Baltimore and has two graduate centers in Timonium and Columbia, Md.
