The Bachelor of Science in Biology (pre-professional) will prepare students for further study in graduate and professional programs in areas such as genetics, microbiology, immunology, and health careers (for example in medicine, pharmacy, optometry, dentistry or other health sciences).

This program will provide a solid foundation in biology taught from a biblical worldview. 

Due to the rigorous intentions of the program, beyond the admissions requirments for the university, applicants must have a mimium composite ACT of 21 (1060-1090 for SAT [Total]) and pass BY141 and BY151 with a minimum grade of C.  Students who do not have a minimum composite ACT of 21 may be admitted to the program by having a MACU cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the end of the freshman year and cmpleting BY141 and BY151 with a minimum grade of B.
