Health Sciences

"Nursing is an requires an exclusive devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?"
  -Florence Nightingale, celebrated English nurse, writer, and statistician (1820-1910)

The Health Sciences major at Colorado Christian University provides a foundation for professional or graduate study in several health related fields such as nursing, physical therapy, physician’s assistant, and pharmaceuticals, among others. After graduating with a degree in Health Sciences, you'll have a broad-based background in the sciences, with specialized knowledge about your area of scientific study.

The Health Sciences major includes a broad cultural background in the arts, humanities and social sciences (advised by the American Medical Association), so whether you plan to go into nursing, dentistry, pharmaceuticals, or medical imaging, you'll be prepared. A Christian perspective on nursing, evolution, and ecology adds an important dimension to the Health Sciences major.

Health Sciences In the Christian University

Through integration of faith and learning in every course, you'll be encouraged to explore your role as a health care provider. Your service to those who are hurting and in need will be extremely rewarding and your degree at Colorado Christian will prepare you for such service, equipping you with the knowledge and academic background you’ll need to be most effective in the healthcare field.

As the demand for health sciences professionals in medical fields grows, the need for well-educated Christian health professionals will also increase. As a student at CCU, you’ll grow in scientific knowledge, but you’ll also be prepared as a holistic health caregiver, equally concerned with the health of the soul as with the health of the body.

Major: Biology

As soon as I stepped onto CCU’s campus, I knew I was home. God’s presence was visible through all of the students and faculty I met when I came out for a preview, and even though Colorado is a long way from home, I have a strong community here that truly is my second family.
