Being an all-online program, I was concerned that communication between instructors and students would not be to the level I need ...

My counseling classes empower me to become a more effective and compassionate youth worker. While working full-time and studying part-time definitely keeps me busy, I have found tremendous support at Loyola. My courses are both clinically useful and intellectually stimulating.
