Bachelor of Science in Biology

The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree prepares students with a sound core curriculum in mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics—all from a Christian worldview.

The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree offers two distinct concentrations in general biology and pre-health sciences. Students will be exposed to the physio-structural, molecular and cellular, ecological, and organismal aspects of biology while preparing for a successful transition into graduate and professional programs in biology and health related fields. Our educational goal, no matter what biological discipline our students choose to study, is that they will be competent biologists who represent the God of Creation well.
