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.
In looking for a college, I wanted a place where I would be able to challenge myself academically but also an environment that would allow me to grow on a spiritual and personal level. Loyola is the best of both worlds.
In academia, there are a lot of people who really want to work together and help students and qualified professionals find what they're looking for. We're much stronger when we work together than when we compete.
