APU’s biology major equips students to explore God’s creation. The degree provides a solid foundation in microbiology, cell biology, organic chemistry, physics, calculus, and genetics. These then provide a framework for an emphasis in ecological, molecular, or organismal biology.
Throughout the program, students study ethical conduct in research, a Christian’s role in the scientific community, and the relationship of Christian faith to the natural world. Biology majors gain a deep understanding of the building blocks of life and leave APU ready to make a difference in the world.
APU also offers a science concentration for liberal studies majors.
