Students in Loyola's biology program benefit from hands-on laboratory experiences, research opportunities with faculty, and a robust curriculum. Together, these experiences create a holistic learning environment that prepares graduates for successful admission to graduate and professional schools or for direct entry into the field. More than half of majors go on to medical, dental, or graduate school—with acceptance rates to professional schools that are nearly twice the national average.

Biology's Solidarity Statement
One of the things that really sets the biology department at Loyola apart is the caring nature of the faculty. We really do care for our students, and the students really care for us.
The possibilities for personal growth are endless. Loyola constantly provides students with the tools to succeed in whatever they put their minds to.
The people who make the biggest difference are those who are willing to fail—and get up and keep going.
