The biology majors provide a broad background in the life sciences equipping students with knowledge and skills to serve God’s creation. Required courses introduce the student to the created order of life, and advanced courses permit students to concentrate in areas of particular interest. The biology majors focus on preparing students for careers in ecological science, in medicine and related health professions, in teaching, or to begin graduate or other professional studies in these areas.
Faculty advisers direct a student’s program toward completing graduation requirements as well as completing entrance requirements to accredited professional schools of agriculture, chiropractic, dentistry, medicine, mortuary science, nursing, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy and veterinary medicine. Being acquainted with pre-professional requirements, the advisers fit the student’s studies to the requirements of these schools. (See the pre-professional programs section of this catalog.)
