Scholarships and Awards

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants provide research, instructional, and administrative support to Loyola's faculty and administration. Most spend between seven and 15 hours per week in their assistantship role and devote the remainder of their time to their academic pursuits. This combination of service, study, research, and teaching (when applicable) constitutes a full-time commitment. Assistantships are competitive positions that are highly sought-after, and they present a rewarding opportunity for you to participate in a vibrant academic community. For more information on graduate assistantships, please review the graduate assistantship website.

BA/BS-MAT Combined Program

Loyola University Maryland undergraduate students from other disciplines who wish to obtain their teacher certification benefit from the option to pursue a five-year program that results in a bachelor's degree within their area of major and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. Students take three graduate-level courses in their senior year which count toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees. Graduate courses taken during the senior year are included in the undergraduate tuition and take the place of undergraduate electives and students begin the remainder of their MAT full-time the summer following graduation. Learn more about the BA/BS-MAT Combined program.
