Our Master of Public Health online and in-person programs prepare public health leaders through personalized education and mentoring, rigorous research, and active community engagement.


Inspired by Loyola's Jesuit tradition of justice and freedom of inquiry, the LUC Public Health program is designed to prepare the student to advance the quality and accessibility of health care by bridging service gaps that exist along racial and economic lines. Our goal is to create leaders in order to meet these challenges by offering online and in-person, career-oriented concentrations, taught through multiple departments and institutes of Loyola's top-ranked university system, including: 

  • the Stritch School of Medicine
  • the Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy 
  • the Institute of Environmental Sustainability
  • the School of Social Work
  • the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing
  • the School of Law

Faculty and students come from a variety of backgrounds and religious traditions, and all are committed to the Jesuit heritage of promoting social justice.
