The Loras Biology program offers majors in biology and biological research. The biological research major is designed for students pursuing research experience after graduation. In addition, an optional specialization in biology for secondary teaching is also offered.
 
The experience available at Loras is unlike that of any other private institution in the Midwest. Our DNA Lab’s sequencer puts recombinant DNA technology directly in the hands of students for use in research projects. Many of our courses emphasize field-sampling techniques and local conservation issues. Our J-Term classes take students to Florida, Texas and Costa Rica.

Of course, the best method to learn about our curriculum, our students and our faculty is to come to Dubuque for a campus visit. Campus visits can be scheduled through the Admissions Office at 563-588-7236 or by contacting Tom Davis at 563-588-7767 or tom.davis@loras.edu.
