Faculty

Pre-Veterinary Medicine & Animal Science

Bachelor’s in Biology (B.S.)

The Bachelor’s in Biology with emphasis on Pre-Veterinary Medicine or Animal Science best prepares students for admission to veterinary medical school. Gaining admission to veterinary medical schools is highly competitive—more so even than medical school—and you will want to begin planning your undergraduate curriculum with this in mind.

  • 95% Med-School acceptance rate. Master’s graduates are accepted into the graduate school of their choice at a high rate.

Alternatively, this bachelor’s degree in biology with a teaching certification qualifies you to teach at the middle or high school levels. Undergraduates may also be employed as lab technicians or in positions with the forest service, fish and wildlife divisions, and the Bureau of Land Management.

Students are required to complete 41 Biology Core units, 23 Biology Emphasis units, 33 General Education units, and 21 Bible units.

Department of Biological & Physical Sciences

Dedicated to developing lifelong patterns of intellectual growth while also being uncompromising in the faith, the Science Department is committed to producing students who are intellectually competent and an exemplary testimony no matter what discipline they study. Holding firm to the truth and inerrancy of Scripture, The Master’s University teaches all classes with the unshakeable foundation of the Bible.

ROOTED IN AN UNWAVERING DEVOTION TO JESUS CHRIST AND THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD, OUR WORLD-CLASS FACULTY AND DEDICATED ADMINISTRATION PREPARE EACH STUDENT’S HEART AND MIND FOR A LIFE OF ETERNAL INFLUENCE. - John MacArthur

  • Doctrinally sound: interpreting science through faith rather than faith through science, including teaching a literal six-day creation and a historical Space-Time Fall

  • Equipping the saints: students develop an understanding of science wherein their professional, academic and spiritual testimony, the Master is presented and exalted

  • Small class sizes means close student-teacher relationships and valuable individual attention

  • Research opportunities are ample, with freedom to structure, conduct and present research with faculty support

  • Career prospects for Veterinary Medicine in Southern California are diverse and numerous

UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

Students are encouraged to pursue personalized scholarship opportunities with individual faculty in the department. Students may translate such research opportunities into academic credit toward graduation in the form of practicums in industrial settings and/or scholarly articles presented to academic and professional societies.
