Paleontology for Christ & Scripture

Bachelor’s in Biology (B.S.), emphasis in Paleontology

There’s no better place to study Paleontology than at The Master’s University. Study trips to geological sites are a significant part of this program, where students have the opportunity to study God’s creation in breathtaking locations like Death Valley and the Grand Canyon.

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. Our students are intellectually competent and an exemplary testimony, holding firm to the truth and inerrancy of Scripture. The goal of all instruction is to send forth the saints with an understanding of health and science, so that through their professional, academic, and spiritual testimony, the Master is presented and exalted.

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
