Minor in Biology
A minor in Biology, as a part of an undergraduate degree, provides exposure to biological concepts, processes and systems. Professors are committed to helping students pursue God’s call on their lives and their personal academic aspirations in the biological sciences.
The Evangel University Department of Natural and Applied Sciences is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent scientific education that is thoroughly integrated with the university’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Within this framework, students must contend with new scientific, social, ethical and technological challenges. Students learn to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and exhibit analytical thinking and problem solving skills.
A minor provides a foundation in biology that allows students to be able to understand and critically evaluate biological information. It facilitates the ability to participate in public policy discussion and decisions. Students are provided with practical experiences through laboratory and field studies in biology courses.
