Department of Biology

As Christian scholars, we believe the study of biology is as essential to loving God’s creation as the study of Scripture. The astonishing processes, marvelous diversity, and still-unlocked mysteries of His world fascinate and inspire us. Which only makes sense, given that biology takes as its subject nothing less than life itself.

When you pursue a major in biology, you will become an investigator, technician, and theorist. Ecology, zoology, genetics, immunology—you can approach the workings of the natural world from nearly any angle. And whichever you choose, Lipscomb’s program will ready you for your life’s work in research or teaching.
