Faculty

Cellular & Molecular Biology

Bachelor’s in Biology (B.A. or B.S.)

Many of the most important discoveries in science in the last 60 years have taken place in this field. Because of the complexity of life at this level, students in this emphasis enjoy some of the most challenging courses in the biology major.

Students are required to complete 41 Biology Core units, 23 Biology Emphasis units, 33 General Education units, and 21 Bible units. A minimum total of 122 units are required to graduate.

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

  • Cellular & Molecular Biology career prospects in Southern California are diverse and numerous

  • 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

  • 95% Med-School acceptance rate

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.
