Loyola Institute for Ministry Professor Michael Cowan is a senior research fellow at the Centre for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict (CRIC) in Harris Manchester College of the University of Oxford. CRIC fellows do research on conflict between groups based in religion, race, ethnicity and nationality. They also teach and serve as mentors and advisers to emerging leaders in divided communities around the world and professionals working in those communities.

"Loyola is one of the best universities for obtaining an advanced degree, and the faculty and staff work well with the students and demand the best from students.  Recognizing that many students who go back for advanced degrees are not traditional students, the faculty and staff have made the program such that with some sacrifices on the students' part, obtaining the degree is extremely possible.  Being an all-online program, I was concerned that communication between instructors and students would not be to the level I need ...

“The faculty members at Loyola were extremely committed to mentoring and training competent counselors prepared to assess psychological disorders and provide effective treatment to their clients. Moreover, the faculty provided interested students the opportunity to develop and hone their research skills in order to become competent consumers of research and to further prepare those students interested in pursuing doctoral degrees.”

“This program has been a truly transformative experience. I’m constantly surrounded by insightful faculty and fellow students in an inspirational, open, and interactive community. Loyola’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program has prepared me to become a capable and compassionate clinical mental health care professional.”

"I quickly realized that my coursework is often immediately applicable to my work with our Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars. 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. Our professors are committed to student growth and to counseling education that is grounded in ethics, animated by diversity, and oriented toward advocacy and service.
