Department of Science and Math
Experiment. Calculate. Change the world.
Real science, real math, taught by real Christians. At Judson University, you’ll learn how faith and fact work together to make a real difference in the world.
“How can we end world hunger?” Our students do more than ask the question. They offer solutions. At Judson’s World Hunger Research Center, students are researching how the velvet bean may become a possible food source for developing countries.
“How can we save the planet?” Start with the water supply. Our students play a pivotal role in the RiverWatch Program, monitoring the microcosm of underwater life and its effects on the world above.
“How does space flight effect bacterial growth and physiology?” This may not be a question that often crosses your mind, but NASA is extremely interested in the answer. To date, Judson’s Space Biology Program has sent five experiments into space on NASA shuttles, including three to the Russian space station Mir. The results were out of this world.
If you have a passion for students and your calling is the classroom, the Science and Mathematics Division, in conjunction with the School of Education, offers a comprehensive program to prepare you to teach science (with specialization in biology, chemisty, and/or environmental science) and mathematics at the secondary level (grades 6-12).
For those who already have a bachelor's degree and are looking for a career change into education, Judson University offers a Certificate Only program. This option leads to teacher certification in as few as 20 months. For more information about the Certificate Only program, click here.
The Science and Mathematics Division also offers pre-professional programs that will prepare you for advanced study in medicine, physical or occupational therapy, pharmacy, physician's assistant and nursing programs.
How can you make a real difference in the world? The possibilities are endless.
