BIOLOGY

Faculty

In the general biology emphasis students can choose from a number of elective classes. Students who choose this emphasis area may go on to seek employment after they graduate or may choose to attend graduate school.

Graduates may also directly enter careers as biochemists, pharmaceutical sales representatives, research assistants, health educator and others in a wide array of in-demand and rapidly growing industries.

Our program is uniquely dedicated to academic excellence, real-world career preparation, and developing lifelong patterns of intellectual growth while also being uncompromising in the faith. We are 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, we teach all classes with the unshakeable foundation of the Bible. Students will graduate ready to go onto the next step in their field, and defend their faith as an equipped and intellectual worker and break new ground.

WE HOLD CHRIST AND SCRIPTURE AS INERRANT AND ABOVE ALL ELSE. EVERYTHING IS INTERPRETED THROUGH THAT LENS WITHOUT COMPROMISE. THIS MEANS THE BIBLE IS THE FOUNDATION FOR SCIENCE, NOT SCIENCE FOR THE BIBLE. - Dr. Joe Francis, Dean of the School of Science, Mathematics, Technology & Health
