Department of Applied Science

Department of Applied Science

The dynamic world of science and math is one of precision and possibility−from applying knowledge learned in a lab or a formula to exploring and solving a myriad of medical and biological problems. If you think science, aviation, or mathematics could benefit the career to which God is leading you, consider one of the programs offered by the Department of Applied Science. You also might want to add an Applied Science minor to another major to enhance your skills and make you more versatile and marketable.

“IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.”

(GEN 1:1)
