Bachelor’s in Geoscience (B.S.)
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.
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. From Biology (General, Cellular, and Molecular) to Pre-Medical, 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.
Students are required to complete 49 Geoscience Core units, 19 Geology Emphasis units, 33 General Education units, and 21 Bible units. A minimum total of 122 units are required to graduate.
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 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.
