- Class Year 2012
- Degree B.A. History
Emma Cogan, '12, received her B.A. from Loyola in history and philosophy. Immediately after graduation, she received a Fulbright scholarship for research in Malaysia, where she spent a year learning to look at health within the framework of human rights. Emma spent time at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a year at a consulting firm carrying out various disease surveillance and health behavior surveys on behalf of the CDC and other government health agencies. Now a graduate student at Johns Hopkins focusing in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Global Environmental Sustainability and Health, Emma remains grateful for the access she had to many incredible opportunities as a Loyola student, including the Honors Program, involvement with the Center for Community Service and Justice, and a semester abroad in Scotland. “I’ve been incredibly privileged in the abundance of experiences offered to me. I think the very least I can do with these gifts is to use the skills to serve those who have not been so fortunate.”

One of the lasting lessons I received from Loyola is that the value of my education lies in the benefits it can provide to communities I care about.
