Curiosity. Exploration. Experience. Discovery. Breakthrough.

You won’t find packed lecture halls or classes led by graduate teaching assistants in Loyola University Maryland’s science programs. Whether you’re taking an introductory course or finishing your final advanced lab before heading off to graduate or medical school, you’ll have small classes, close contact with professors, and opportunities to work with scientific equipment most students won’t encounter until graduate school.

Loyola science faculty offer all sorts of ways for undergraduate students to participate in active research, and the most rewarding might be our Hauber Fellowship program, which offers a stipend for students interested in pursuing independent research in partnerships with a science faculty members. The program runs for 10 weeks each summer, requires an oral presentation describing each Fellow’s work, ends with a poster session, and often includes a chance to submit the final written report to science journals for publication and present the research at national symposia. Fellows also have the opportunity to engage in a fall academic research competition on campus.
