A major in Biology provides students with a background in the chemical, mathematical, and physical sciences. Biology majors will be prepared to take graduate level biological science courses for careers inside and outside traditional biology. The major in Biology consists of 46 credit hours of core courses and 22 credit hours in elective courses.

Major Mission and Outcomes

The mission of the Biology major is to graduate individuals who exemplify academic excellence in biological science and who are prepared to lead and committed to serve.

Students majoring in Biology will meet the following four outcomes which coordinate with Warner University’s mission to provide academic excellence and a Christian learning environment.

  1. Compare favorably in their knowledge of biology to those students completing a similar program nationally.
  2. Develop a depth of understanding of opportunities in their major field and be afforded guidance in preparation for a career or advanced study.
  3. Investigate the relationship of a Christian Worldview to scientific thought and begin developing a rationale for their faith.
  4. Be prepared for graduate programs or entry level positions within the field of Biology.
