What makes Loyola University Chicago unique?
We are a Jesuit institution located in the Chicago metropolitan region with a strong emphasis on social justice and reducing health disparities. Loyola is committed to delivering a high-quality education enhanced by interdisciplinary and experiential learning, positioning our students to be well prepared to take up a role in solving contemporary health and social challenges. The MPH program has two tracks: 1) public health policy and management and 2) epidemiology. Our classes take place online and in traditional settings in the evening, allowing working professionals to pursue a career in public health. Our faculty has been engaging in global health research with an emphasis on African-origin populations for over 20 years and a focus on cardiovascular and kidney disease and obesity. Over the last decade, our research portfolio has diversified to the areas of infectious diseases including Hepatitis C, health services research and bioinformatics. These research programs provide a laboratory for our students to conduct capstone work with original data not available elsewhere.
