Extraordinary growth leads to extraordinary things
Since 1849, students majoring in the sciences at Waynesburg University have graduated to become leaders in health and medicine. Our students prepare for the real world by being immersed in it with the guidance of experienced professors. From conducting significant research alongside their instructors and presenting at national conferences to securing placement in competitive research fellowship and graduate programs, our undergraduates do far more than listen to lectures—they research, they make discoveries, they achieve. Waynesburg University offers programs in Biology, Exercise Science, Healthcare Management, Nursing, Pre-dental, Pre-medical, Pre-pharmacy, Pre-physical Therapy, and Pre-veterinary.
Grow through service
While guiding students in the development of specific skills and talents, Waynesburg also provides opportunities to apply and sharpen them through service. In fact, students, faculty, and staff spend approximately 50,000 hours each year working to improve the lives of others. Service opportunities include service learning courses, international and domestic mission trips, the Bonner Program, and personal service initiatives, among others.
Grow in grace
Waynesburg helps students develop academically and professionally on the foundation of faith. Students may choose to practice their faith every Tuesday at chapel, in their classes, in prayer or Bible study groups, through their artwork, while they’re serving others, or in their own individual ways.
