Why Choose Biology?

The biology program at IIT provides a rigorous educational experience in the fundamental areas of biology including genetics, microbiology, cell biology and biochemistry, and structural biophysics. It gives you a firm foundation in the field, both in biological theory and experimentation, so that you may pursue many career paths after leaving IIT.

Our students also benefit from small class sizes, classes taught by faculty (not teaching assistants) who are accessible to students, and individual advising by members of the faculty.

The curriculum is interdisciplinary and flexible, allowing degree options in biology, biochemistry, and molecular biochemistry and biophysics. IIT offers special degree programs in secondary education, dual B.S./M.S., dual B.S./M.D. or D.O., and dual B.S./optometry.
