Loyola Maryland

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Loyola College in Maryland, or Loyola Maryland, is a Jesuit university committed to the educational and spiritual traditions of the Jesuit order. It is dedicated to the ideals of liberal education and the development of the whole person. Loyola Maryland has two other campuses - one in Columbia and the other in Timonium. Tracing its root back to 1852, it is one of 28 member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. The institution was founded by Father John Early and eight other Jesuits. It was the first college in the United States to bear the name of St. Ignatius Loyola. Initially, it was located on Holliday Street, but in 1855, it was relocated to a larger facility in the city's historic Mount Vernon neighborhood. Ultimately, it moved to its present Evergreen campus in north Baltimore, in 1922. In 1971, it merged with Mount Saint Agnes College (a neighboring women's college), thus becoming a co-educational institution. Over the years, it has grown to become one of the best known institutions in Maryland. A wide range of graduate programs, which include Computing/Software Engineering, Business/Finance, Education/Teacher Certification, Liberal Studies, Montessori Education, Psychology, Pastoral Counseling/Spiritual Care, and Speech Language Pathology, are offered. The College of Arts and Sciences provides undergraduate degree programs in the traditional schools of liberal arts, engineering, speech pathology/audiology, and education. Master’s programs in computer science, education, modern studies, pastoral counseling, psychology, and speech pathology/audiology are available. The lone Ph.D.-level program is in pastoral counseling. The Sellinger School of Business and Management offers undergraduate programs, graduate programs, and continuing education programs. The opportunity to be involved in community service is provided through the Center for Values and Services. The Center for the Humanities sponsors a wide range of programs, which include lectures, a lecture series, and fine arts performances. Through Service-Learning, the campus provides opportunity to learn about any subject in the arts, business, the humanities, and the social and natural sciences, by engaging in service as part of their normal coursework. The Loyola Clinical Centers, a facility provided by the campus, offers a broad range of services addressing educational, language, and psychological issues. Committed to excellence, the Loyola College Art Gallery showcases hands-on exhibits that are inspiring, educational, and at times, provocative. The Loyola/Notre Dame Library contains 425,000 books and bound periodical volumes, 30,000 media items, and 2,100 current periodicals. A variety of clubs and organizations are supported to promote cultural activities and interaction among the students.
