Patrick Brugh, Ph.D.
- Academic Focus Modern Languages & Literatures and Gender Studies
Patrick Brugh, Ph.D., works to promote a learning community through the variety of courses he teaches at Loyola using real-world examples, literature, film, art, and language to expose his students to many ways of internalizing course material. As director of Loyola’s Language Learning Center, he hopes to create a place for students to study, to be innovative, and to collaborate on projects. Dr. Brugh, who joined Loyola’s faculty in 2013, completed a Master of Arts and a Ph.D. in Germanic Languages and Literatures from Washington University in St. Louis. His scholarship and research examine societal views of technology during warfare, hybrid feminist-Ignatian pedagogies, and social justice in the language classroom. Whether he is teaching courses in German, Gender Studies, women’s literature, or philosophy, Dr. Brugh says his own Jesuit education helps him strive for radical empathy, reflection, and understanding in the classroom.

Students at Loyola, both graduates and undergraduates, want to know how to apply learning to their real-world experiences. They want to know how to use the information that they’re learning... and then they use it almost immediately.
