Why Major in Biological Sciences?

Whether your career goal is to become a field ecologist, a neuroscientist, a molecular biologist, or pursue a medical career, UIC is the place to start.

The department boasts many talented faculty who teach courses and welcome undergraduates into their labs who are seeking research experience. Many affiliated faculty in colleges outside of LAS also take students into their labs. We also have two professional academic advisors who are here to assist you in planning your courses as well as helping to answer other questions that arise.
