Life commitments can make pursuing an education challenging. Loyola University makes it easier by offering bachelor's and master's degree programs in a variety of formats – online, daytime, and evening classes. Our programs reflect the basic philosophy of Jesuit education, combining rigorous and contemporary professional education with a broad foundation in the humanities and social sciences.
