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
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.
One of the things that really sets the biology department at Loyola apart is the caring nature of the faculty. We really do care for our students, and the students really care for us.
Getting involved on campus is extremely easy—and doing so has allowed me to create genuine connections with faculty and my peers. Loyola has created an environment where I feel confident in my abilities while simultaneously giving me the tools to flourish as an individual.
