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.
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.
In academia, there are a lot of people who really want to work together and help students and qualified professionals find what they're looking for. We're much stronger when we work together than when we compete.
The professors and Pre-Health faculty are more than willing to help students reach their ultimate goal. They inspire and encourage us to apply for nationally-acclaimed programs that will impact our personal and academic paths. My Jesuit education has also taught me the value of service and leadership in my personal and my professional life.
