We invite you to come and explore the Department of Biology at Bradley University! Our knowledgeable professors are dedicated to teaching and research, and our classes are designed to prepare students to excel in their field. Our graduates have enjoyed outstanding success rates entering into post-graduate professional programs (medical, dental, veterinary, podiatry, optometry, chiropractic) and post-graduate M.S. and Ph.D. programs (developmental, cell and molecular biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology), or beginning their careers right after graduation. We pride ourselves on the fantastic placement of our graduates into medical schools, graduate schools, and other professional programs. Please see the list of post-graduate programs recently attended by our students.

To find out more about the faculty, the curriculum, undergraduate and graduate research opportunities, and more, please use the menu at the left to navigate our website.

For prospective students with questions about the department, please contact the department and we’ll be happy to answer them for you. For our former students, we always enjoy hearing updates from you – tell us how things are going!
