After completing two of three foundational course sequences in the sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) and a two-course math sequence, the students can choose whatever 16 hours of upper-divisional electives they desire to meet graduation requirements and fulfill their career goals.

Mentoring and Experience

The Natural Science major offers hands-on experience in the laboratory, as well as one-on-one attention from experienced faculty active in their field of study. Natural Science majors have the opportunity to use instrumentation in their elective chemistry and physics courses. They also have the opportunity to be lab assistants and be mentored in independent research projects.

Find Success at Judson

The coursework and research opportunities provided by the Science and Mathematics Department prepared me well for graduate study in Biology. Of equal importance, the science faculty at Judson are superb examples of Christians who practice and teach science. Through their words and actions, they demonstrate that there is no inherent conflict between faith and the study of the natural universe and that the two can in fact interact with each other beautifully. As educators, they have high standards and clear expectations, but they go to great lengths to help their students meet those standards and expectations – they care deeply about their students’ success.”
