School of Biological Sciences
“The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Biology program is to provide students the opportunity to study in a Christ-centered environment to obtain an excellent academic foundation in the biological sciences. Through a variety of course offerings, the student will become prepared to enter a post baccalaureate graduate program, professional schools such as medicine, dentistry and pharmacy, or a career related to the biological sciences.”
Graduates of this program will:
- Be provided with basic instruction in the concepts of professional education in biology, chemistry, and physics to prepare students to successfully continue their education at the graduate school level.
- Receive instruction in the basic sciences as a foundation for students pursuing professional degrees in the health sciences and allied health fields.
- Develop a self-awareness of their responsibility as a Christian to use their chosen major in the sciences and health fields to be a servant-leader.
Our Bachelor of Science in Biology will prepare students for further study in graduate and professional programs in areas such as genetics, microbiology, immunology, and health careers. Students interested in pursuing degrees in medicine, pharmacy, optometry, dentistry, or other health sciences are encouraged to consider this concentration which was designed to accommodate a broad range of entrance requirements for many programs. Students should work closely with their assigned academic advisor to help prepare them for admission to the professional program of their choice.
