Majors

Biology

Our biology students examine God's biological and physical creation from the bio-molecular to the organismal levels.

The field of biology has numerous options for specialization, so many biology majors go on to some form of postgraduate education to prepare for careers in research, industry, or health care. The Biology Major- Foundation Option is designed to be a rigorous 124-hour program that prepares students for postgraduate training such as medical, dental, pharmacy, or veterinary school, or other advanced degrees. Students wishing to attend nursing or physical therapy school can also choose the Biology Major-Foundation Option. The Health Science Major (regular or dual degree track) provides the prerequisite coursework for most nursing programs, with the regular track allowing sufficient elective hours for a minor or double major. The Biology Major-Secondary Licensure Option (126 hours) prepares students to effectively teach biology at the middle to high school level.
