Those who are knee-deep in health science know how great the Creator is.
A fuller knowledge of how the human body works can only bring us closer to the One who makes it tick. The professors who oversee the learning in the Department of Science and Mathematics at Grace believe that a Christian perspective in this arena is life-altering and career-defining. They believe—and encourage their students to believe—that God not only created all that we know, but also gives us sufficient evidence of His creation.
So while we study biology, anatomy, and chemistry, we unite the classroom experience with the worship experience—soaking in a scientific knowledge about the majesty of God’s creation while humbly recognizing and extolling Him as the Creator.
This mindset informs all of the health and medicine programs we offer:
Grace partners with Bethel University to offer a degree in nursing. Graduates of the program have a strong history of passing the state board examination on the first attempt, qualifying for licenses as registered nurses.
The medical imaging major is delivered in collaboration with John Patrick University. Majors have the option of specializing in either nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), sonography or computed tomography (CT).
The Health Science major prepares students in biology and chemistry for professional ambitions in science and medicine, including PreChiropractic, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medicine (DO or MD), Pre-Occupational Therapy, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Podiatry, and Pre-Veterinary.
The exercise science major takes an applied learning approach, allowing opportunities for hands-on experiences and introducing students to a wide variety of career options in wellness, fitness, and applied health. This program prepares students with the foundation needed for graduate degrees in Physical Therapy, Sports Medicine, Athletic Training, Exercise Physiology, and Occupational Therapy.
