Degree programs - Department of Biological Sciences

Our degree programs

All majors in the Department of Biological Sciences combine rigorous coursework and hands-on experience in order to prepare students for graduate or medical school, or immediate employment. An integral part of our curriculum is research experience either in our cutting-edge facilities or through off-campus internships. Our students also have the flexibility to pursue minors in related fields, and study abroad. Since students study in the context of a Christian liberal arts college, they can simultaneously investigate the world around them and their Creator. The department emphasizes the integration of knowledge of the sciences with the teachings of the Christian faith throughout the curriculum.
