Health Science

Department of Science and Mathematics

The focus of the Health Sciences major at Grace College is to prepare motivated students who aspire to provides health care for health-related graduate education in their specialty of interest. At the heart of the major is the scientific study of life and life processes, placing God as the creator and sustainer of all life. Students will study the molecular composition, metabolic processes, and micro and macro anatomy of a variety of life, focusing on humans. These studies emphasize laboratory activities to explore technical details of these processes first-hand. It is our desire that those studying health science as a major will gain a much deeper appreciation of the details of the incredible complexity of God’s living handiwork, as well as being prepared with excellence for further schooling at the graduate level.
