- Program Master of Arts in Teaching - English
Corinne has always wanted to be a teacher. "Being at Loyola has only ignited this passion and helped it grow," says the Long Island native who is majoring in English. "Once I saw a student make a connection or understand something, it was just so rewarding and something that I knew I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since then, I've seized every opportunity to go into a classroom," she explains. Corinne spent two weeks teaching English in a rural school in Thailand, where she also took courses towards her TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification. Corinne says she was drawn to Loyola because of its five-year program for educators. After she earns her bachelor's degree in English, she will spend a year pursuing her Master of Arts in Teaching at Loyola. Corinne is co-president of the Education Ambassadors Club and enjoys the field experience component of her degree, as well as Loyola's focus on urban education and diversity, which she says she was not afforded in her hometown.

I was attracted to Loyola because of its beautiful campus, but also for the five-year master's program in education, which is perfect for me. I knew entering college that I wanted to become a teacher, and now I will complete my MAT by the time I am 23.
