NNU’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology is a multidisciplinary degree focusing on broad biology fundamentals. To make sure the student’s education includes much more than a textbook, NNU professors focus on hands-on learning in labs and offer summer research opportunities with professor-student collaboration. This degree is ideal for students pursuing biological related careers upon graduation.

  4. Students will be able to evaluate their spiritual beliefs, ethics, and actions as they relate to science and the natural world.
