Learning through life
High school students must learn to appreciate the complexity and order of God’s creation.
They need to understand the necessity of that structure and its uniqueness, all demonstrated in the world around us—from cells and microbes to plants, animals, and birds. Are you ready to become a teacher who can effectively pass this knowledge on to them?
Pursuing biology on a higher level
Andrea Ray’s conversation with another Purdue University graduate student confirmed that God had placed her in the right place. “She said to me, ‘The only things I knew about you were that you spoke Spanish and that you believed in God.’”
Ray ('11) is pursuing her doctorate in microbiology at Purdue's Interdisciplinary Life Sciences program and has had the opportunity to conduct research with others on a lab team. Their research deals with an enzyme in E. coli bacteria, also found in human cells, which may have an application to cancer research.

Our faculty knows science
“There are many examples of prominent scientists who were also Christians, and understanding that is important,” said Dr. Molitor.
“My desire is to show students the benefits and importance of studying how God’s creation works.”

Teacher licensure program
Teacher education students at Maranatha can choose to follow a licensure program that will allow them to teach in the public school setting. The license program requires two teaching placements and a full semester of student teaching.
Once students have completed the program, they will be eligible to apply for a teaching license through the Department of Public Instruction.
