The UMHB Department of Biology stimulates students to attain scholarly excellence in the life sciences, within a Christian context, to prepare majors for career success in their chosen field and to provide non-majors with a foundation in biological principles. Our goals are 1) to prepare students for career success and leadership in the life sciences; 2) to strengthen the abilities of students to engage in critical thinking through the process of scientific investigation; and 3) to prepare students to apply faith-based discernment in contemporary social and ethical issues related to Biology.
