Graduate schools increasingly favor specialized degrees, and undergraduate students are coming 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 the creationist, biblical worldview. This degree allows students to become holistically thinking molecular biologists. It enhances students' depth of knowledge in this competitive and growing field, equipping them for future success in a variety of career tracks.
