At Loyola, you can prepare to become a certified secondary teacher in Classical Studies, English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, or Social Studies. You can study pre-law, and pre-health programs with professional advisors, and benefit from professional and student tutors in the Student Success Center, Language Lab, and Math Lab.

Dr. Leland Tabares and Dr. Sakinah Hofler will be joining the English faculty this fall as Visiting Assistant professors. Both professors are highly accomplished and published writers. Dr. Tabares' work centers on literature, labor, and racialization in contemporary American culture. Dr. Sakinah Hofler is a fiction writer, poet, and playwright who successfully defended her dissertation this spring at the University of Cincinnati where she was an Albert C. Yates Fellow.
We are so excited to welcome them both to the Department of English at Loyola University!
