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.
The faculty at Loyola are very supportive. They want to see their students succeed and will help work with you in any way possible to achieve your goals.
At Loyola, I was able—and encouraged—to explore different academic areas before committing to a single career path. I loved being able to integrate topics from different disciples into my daily life. With a Loyola education, I created a major that reflected my passions, combining biology with writing and a minor in sociology.
Loyola offers a holistic approach to the college experience, one where you can take an active position in being a committed member of the community on campus, while also paving the way for your career by shadowing and volunteering off-campus.
