School of Biological Sciences


1. What careers can I pursue with my biology degree?

A career in biology would enable students to pursue opportunities in almost all areas of the medical field such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, and veterinary medicine. Outside of the medical professions, students could pursue further job opportunities in the areas of bioengineering, ecology, public health and the health department, the forestry service, science teaching, soil conservation, state or federal parks, and medical technology. A graduate could find employment as a botanist, zoologist, animal or science photographer, microbiologist, wildlife biologist, or marine biologist. Government opportunities exist with the Department of Agriculture or the Environmental Protection Agency.

2. Why choose KCU to study biology?

At KCU, students will be challenged by a well-qualified and diversified faculty. The science faculty view your vocation as an expression of your faith and will strive to provide the student with a unique Christ-centered education. The ultimate desire is for every student to develop spiritually and academically. Students enjoy the smaller student-faculty ratio of 16 / 1 which enhances individual attention and mentoring.

3. How long will I need to complete my degree?

Students who follow the suggested four-year curriculum map should have no difficulty in completing the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology within a four-year time frame.

4. What are my chances of getting into a professional school or graduate school after graduating from KCU?

Nearly 100 percent of KCU biology students who have applied have been accepted to their preferred professional school or graduate program. Occasionally, some students have gained acceptance before completion of the four-year degree.

Well Equipped

“I look back at my four years at Kentucky Christian University often and fondly. The classes were relevant, the professors were genuine, and the campus was focused on the schools mission: Christ, Character, Career. I was well equipped to minister to and lead worship in the hundreds of congregations we visit each year as the band “64 to Grayson”. If I went back and was faced with the choice to go to KCU again, I would do it in a heartbeat.”

Zack Shelton, Class of 2013
