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
We have such great students here. It sounds like a soundbite, but it’s true.
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.
My favorite thing about Loyola is the faculty-to-student ratio. Being able to get to know and connect with my professors is one of the most unique and valuable aspects of a Loyola education.
