Dr. David Puls '03, and his wife Anna (Bobb) '04, both completed the Chemistry minor at CCU. David later received his medical degree from Des Moines University, while Anna completed her Master's in Physician Assistant Studies from DMU.


"Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. Each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish...We need each other to be what we must be, what we are called to be."
  - Pope John Paul II (1920-2005)

The Chemistry minor at Colorado Christian University offers you a foundation in five major areas within the chemistry field. You'll study physical chemistry (kinetics and equilibrium), analytical chemistry (acids, base, redox), inorganic chemistry (atmospheric chemistry and metals), organic chemistry (alkanes and function groups), and biochemistry (proteins, CHO, and nucleic structure and function).

Chemistry In the Christian University

Students at CCU gain hands-on experience conducting experiments in the chemistry laboratory. The Chemistry minor provides a framework of knowledge that is ideal preparation if you wish to pursue an academic major in biology or science. It is also helpful if you're hoping to attend medical school. A minor in Chemistry at CCU offers you the chance to glean valuable insight and experience; you'll also gain the opportunity to wrestle with the provocative relationship between science and faith.

I feel that despite social and cultural pressures, the study of science and theology do not have to be at odds. Rather, our study of science (namely biology: the study of life) can enrich our understanding of creation. Studying science can humble us to see how vast and grand God is and can yield hope as we remember that humans alone were made in God’s image.
