SBU’s Biology Department equips students with the skills necessary to flourish in their field.

Recent graduates have scored well on the Major Field Test and many are pursing advanced degrees in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, and dentistry.

  • The biology department consists of five highly qualified and dedicated faculty, all of whom have earned doctorate degrees. They are committed Christians who care about students both as biologists and as individuals. They provide a quality education on a personal level that will challenge and prepare students for their career in biology and in life in general. 
  • Students may apply for the Southwest Baptist Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program. This summer program allows students to conduct research with a faculty member and get paid for doing it.
  • Students have an opportunity to study abroad through the SBU/USFQ Partnership Program in Ecuador. Recently, two of our biology students did just that, and for one student it included the Galapagos Islands.
  • Biology students may pursue a second major or minor in other academic areas including the Integration of Science and Christian Faith.
