Bachelor of Science in Biology (with Concentrations)

Concentrations: Medical Sciences, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Veterinary

In the past century, we have witnessed remarkable breakthroughs in scientific technology: cloning, the mapping of the human genome and the first remote surgery, to name a few. But is our ability to create these technologies sufficient justification to employ them?Concentrations available: Medical Sciences, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Veterinary  We believe, at Southeastern, that Christians in scientific and medical professions have a responsibility not only to understand emerging technologies but also to investigate the moral and ethical implications of scientific advancements. In our biologyprogram, we honor God’s creation by learning all we can about it. Our approach is critical, logical, current and objective. It is also biblical because, to us, the best scientific thinkers also have a strong moral, ethical and faith foundation against which to measure their knowledge. In your classes, you will gain an in-depth exposure to the biological, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences and have the opportunity to participate in medical mission trips and local ministry opportunities.

Our alumni have gone on to some of the top medical schools in the country, including Johns Hopkins, University of Florida, Baylor and Emory. We have SEU undergraduate in pharmacology, chiropractic, dental and optometry schools.

Early Acceptance to Medical School or Veterinary School

In cooperation with Lake Eerie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), SEU students have the ability to apply for early acceptance to LECOM during their freshman or sophomore year.

SEU students pursuing a BS in Biology with a concentration in veterinary medicine have the chance to apply for a seat into Ross University’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program.

Sample Core Courses

  • Human Anatomy and Physiology I (BIOL 2085) — This course is the first of a two-term sequence in human anatomy and physiology. Course topics include scientific measurement, basic inorganic and organic chemistry, cytology, and histology followed by detailed investigation of the skin, skeleton, joints, muscles, the nervous system and selected special senses.
  • General Genetics (BIOL 2533) — This course is an introduction to genetics, including the fundamental concepts of Mendelian and molecular genetics.
  • Medical Terminology (BIOL 3703) — This course prepares students for post-baccalaureate educational programs by learning medical terminology used in those curricula. This course is design to significantly improve the scientific vocabulary skills and prepare the student for professional admission exams used in screening applicants who intend to seek careers in graduate and medical science degrees.
  • Biochemistry I (NSCI 4353) — This course is an introduction to the structures and cellular functions of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Topics include basic concepts of enzymes and kinetics, biological membranes and transport, and biosignaling.
