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.
Loyola's Donnelly Science Center features state-of-the-art instructional labs and facilities for cell culture, neurobiology, forensic analysis, anatomy, and microscopy. Take advantage of our 24/7 Bio Student Learning Center and additional spaces designed for studying and group work.
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.
Unlike a big research university, every faculty member in the biology department at Loyola is invested in both teaching and research, which work to strengthen each other.
Loyola has given me the opportunity to interact and engage with people from a variety of backgrounds, each with a unique perspective.
Our Loyola Community
Students in this biology class get hands-on experience with plant propagation, testing disease-fighting properties, and examining nutrient composition.
