Biology is the study of life—from molecules to biomes. If you have a natural fascination with the world around you, majoring in biology at Gordon will challenge you to dig into your curiosity as you investigate life on land, in the air and underwater. And since we see faith and science as deeply connected, you’ll explore bigger topics in biology, like bioethics, creation care and stewardship. Whether you’re interested in the human body, plants, animals or microbes, our five concentrations will help you tailor your studies to meet your goals.
