About the Department:
The Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences seeks to furnish a sound education from a Christian viewpoint so that students will be equipped, not only intellectually but spiritually, for the modern workplace. Students are provided with strong preparation in mathematics and in the sciences for graduate studies or a career. The department also strives to prepare secondary school teachers in biology, chemistry, mathematics, general science, physics, and physical science. Mathematics and science are also taught to pre-service elementary school teachers. A pre-professional foundation in dentistry, medicine, medical technology, optometry, pharmacy, nursing, occupational therapy, and physical therapy is also offered.
Two degrees are available in the Department of Mathematics
and Natural Sciences-the B.S. in Education for those who plan to teach and the
B.S. for those interested in research, entry level mathematical and statistical
positions in government, business, and industry, graduate school or the health
professions. Two majors are offered: Biology and Mathematics. The Biology major
has three tracks: Track A-Biology, Track B: Biology and Medical Technology and
Track C-Natural Science. The Biology major may choose from one of three fields
of emphasis: Wildlife Biology, Pre-Pharmacy, and Medical Sciences.
