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
Loyola professors prepare you for the real world, both academically and personally, and do so in a way that allows students to find jobs after graduation and then to perform successfully in their careers.
The sense of community, the faculty, the friends, and the bonds I have made so far are my favorite things about Loyola. We all want to be successful, and it is really inspiring to be around such brilliant minds.
I chose Loyola in part for the Honors Program and also because of my desire to dive deep into a liberal arts experience and wrestle with new and difficult concepts, works, and ideas.
