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). Students at CCU gain hands-on experience by regularly 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.

Chemistry in the Christian University

Studying the Natural Sciences at CCU is first and foremost a study of the world that God created. CCU's Chemistry minor can offers you the chance to glean valuable insight and experience into the structure and properties of the basic elements of the periodic table, the building blocks of our world. In addition, you will also gain the opportunity to discuss different Christian perspectives on the relationship between science and faith.

Anna Puls (Bobb)

Biology; Chemistry minor
Class of 2004

I started my studies in the Physician Assistant program at DMU in 2005. In May of 2007 my husband graduated from medical school and began a family medicine residency in Greeley, Colorado. I returned to Iowa in August to graduate from the PA program after completing my last few rotations in Greeley. Shortly after graduation I passed my boards and am now a Certified Physician Assistant (PA-C).
