Science

Knowledge of the world

Because we are living in an increasingly scientific world, general science literacy is important in many fields from business to politics. If you have a non-science major but are fascinated by the scientific study of the earth, human body, plants, atmosphere, classification, and other aspects of science, Maranatha offers a great science minor from a Christian perspective.

You’ll receive a useful introduction to earth science, life science, and physical science, along with an understanding of basic knowledge, methods, and limitations of the field of science. If you hope to teach science someday, consider a Science Education major.
