From electrons to ecosystems, scientific discovery will be at your fingertips in one of Indiana’s premier Christian college Biology programs. Not only will you gain an advanced understanding of how biological organisms work, but you will be encouraged to relate your faith to the study of biology and prepare for a biology career.
Because the Biology Investigations & Applications major is designed for students wanting to become professional biologists, research development, production, and reporting is a significant part of the degree program. Students take a Research Proposal course, which unpacks how to plan for a research project. From there, students systematically conduct and report on research, taking the project from inception to end results. By guiding students through the entire sequence of research, they’ll be well prepared for post-graduate studies and careers.

The Foundational Core classes will give you a big-picture view of how your calling connects with God's purpose for your life, engaging with ideas that will demonstrate how God has given you certain talents and skills to bring healing to the world. You’ll become a well-versed individual, equipped with critical thinking skills, a lifelong love of learning, and an appreciation for God's creation.
Throughout your Biology classes and labs, you will learn and apply various scientific principles including explorations in chemistry, ecology, and genetics, as well as developmental, cell, and molecular biology.
From your first Biology lab to your last, you will be working with Euler Science Complex’s graduate-level equipment. Small lab and class sizes allow students to work both individually and collaboratively with state-of-the-art technology in Euler’s comparative anatomy and microbiology lab, cell biology and molecular genetics lab, cell culture room, and large greenhouse.
