Preparing Students for Success in the Sciences
The Department of Biology and Chemistry, housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Azusa Pacific University, provides an environment where undergraduate students can develop a Christian worldview and learn to integrate their faith into their lives as scientists. The department offers science courses that are consistent with its four undergraduate majors (biology major, biochemistry major, chemistry major, and pre-allied health-pharmacy major) and two minors (in biology and chemistry), while also meeting the goals of the General Education program and providing support courses for students in other majors. Additionally, available research and conference opportunities compliment students' classroom learning and prepare them for graduate or professional studies and for success in their chosen careers.
The Department of Biology and Chemistry serves God through the integration of a Christian perspective into the disciplines of biology and chemistry and the preparation of Christian men and women to serve in leadership or support roles in these sciences.
