Graduate schools increasingly favor specialized degrees, and undergraduate students have come to expect more detail in their research and training. Cedarville's bachelor of science in molecular and cellular biology prepares students for graduate study in cellular or molecular biology, genetics, and related fields in the biological sciences. Cedarville is one of only a few conservative Christian schools that offer a major in this important field.
The program prepares students through extensive study in molecular and cellular biology within the context of a broad biological background — all of which is firmly grounded in a biblical worldview. A required research component ensures that students are competent practitioners of the scientific method. Through rigorous coursework, real-world problem solving and carefully designed laboratory experiences, students receive the theoretical and technical training that they need to become holistically thinking molecular biologists.
