The University of Chicago

Prospective Students

Dear Prospective Student

Welcome to the Graduate Programs of the Biological Sciences Division. I hope that our website will provide you with a good sense of the exciting intellectual atmosphere that characterizes the University of Chicago, and of the breadth and depth of our research mission. The University of Chicago is an institution that values the transformative power of ideas, and many of those ideas come directly from our graduate student body. Unlike many other institutions, our graduate students represent a driving force that underlies the cutting edge research we do. If you want to be on that cutting edge, and to contribute in a meaningful way to our long history of research excellence, then we invite you to apply to our programs.
