2023-2024 CATALOG

The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.

Public Affairs and Management Certificate

As a working professional, you may have a degree in your field but now realize you need additional skills to advance into an administrative or managerial position. The certificate program in public affairs and management can give you that background in only one year of work. The program helps you to develop a set of core skills needed in government or nonprofit work, while providing some tailoring for your particular career needs.

Courses are offered in a mix of online and in-person formats.  All in-person classes are taught at Loyola University’s Water Tower Campus in the later afternoon or evening. Classes meet once a week for 2 and 1/2 hours for a 15-week semester.
