The study of life

Using science to make an impact

Taught from a Christian perspective, the program takes students beyond learning and understanding facts to consider the ultimate meaning of the biological world, ethical issues in modern biology, and the nature of science and life.

Faculty Focus

Abbie Schrotenboer

Associate Professor of Biology

For Dr. Abbie Schrotenboer, a guiding theme for her classes is exploring God’s creation together. “As we learn more about the world around us, from cells to animals to ecosystems, we have a greater appreciation for God’s creative power and sustaining work in creation, and we also can be more informed about how we interact with creation.”
