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
My Jesuit education has allowed me to serve others, which is ultimately what I want to do in my future health profession. Learning more about my own spiritual Catholic identity has allowed me to grow as a person while following my passions.”
Loyola’s Jesuit education of the whole person made such an incredible impact on my experience and my growth into the person I am today.
It is difficult to encapsulate all of the different ways in which I am using my Loyola education. Simply put, my exposure to the liberal arts has had such a powerful impact on my ability to be an entrepreneur.
