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
I am glad that our campus has such a caring community with services in place to help care for the whole person and make sure all aspects of life can be improved to help promote learning.
We have such great students here. It sounds like a soundbite, but it’s true.
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.
