Loyola's biology department is an actively engaged group that focuses on excellence in teaching and undergraduate research. The curriculum prepares students as academicians, for their professional career after Loyola and as lifelong learners.
Faculty encourage students to become involved in the program beyond the classroom experience by conducting research projects with biology professors and co-authoring papers presented at regional and national meetings, or becoming a member of the Tri Beta National Biology Honor Society or the biology Student Advisory Board. It is our hope that all students will want to become involved in department activities and contribute to an engaging academic environment.
