Welcome! We hope you can use this website to learn about our program, its curriculum, its faculty and its students. The Biology Curriculum at Loras has proven effectiveness. Many Loras Biology graduates have used their experiences here to find challenging and rewarding positions in education, health science, graduate school and many other jobs. Small class size and personal attention from our faculty will help you not just learn biology but experience it, question it and internalize it. Majors get hands-on, up-close learning opportunities. Our curriculum will help you prepare for a specific field of interest but will also give you the chance to learn about many aspects of the natural world from biomolecules, genes and cells to plant and animal ecology and human physiology. Almost all our courses have laboratory experiences with them. These labs are student-centered, focused around asking questions and using the Scientific Method to answer them.
Of course, the best method to learn about our curriculum, our students and our faculty is to come to Dubuque for a campus visit. Not only will you get a tour of the Loras campus, but you can talk with a Biology faculty member about questions that you have or learn about what a typical day or week is like. We would be happy to have you attend one of our classes while you are here and/or we will give you a tour of our program facilities. Campus visits can be scheduled through the Admissions Office at 563-588-7236 or by contacting Tom Davis, Program Chair, at 563-588-7767 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
