Science In the Christian University

With small classes and labs led by experienced Christian professors, you'll gain the most from a challenging curriculum that among other things explores the relationship between faith and science. The emphasis in all of our courses is that science is all about discovering the operating principles behind the world that God created and put us in. Nature is God's second 'book', and its order and purpose reflects the character of its creator.
