Life. Science. Perspective.
Study the life sciences at North Greenville University. You won’t have to check your faith at the door.
Rise from Strong Roots
Prepare to enter one of the many professions rooted in biology. Medicine, nursing, and pharmacy, of course. But also, lab scientist, genetic counselor, nutritionist, or technical writer.
Personal, environmental, and community health all begin with biology. When you
Experience Learning in Labs & Internships
Labs for Every Level of Experience
So, you want to major in biology, but you feel all thumbs in the lab? We love moving you quickly yet comfortably from beginning steps through lab mastery. Then it’s on to metabolism, immunology, and environmental interactions.
Ready, Set, Demonstrate
Research, writing, presentations—that’s your professional life in biology-based careers. We’ll show you how, through a sequence of seminars that lead into your senior project, a written and oral demonstration of your scientific know-how. Then you’re ready for work, professional training, or graduate research.
Explore your career path through an internship. Our environmental science students have interned with organizations including Greenville Zoo; Roper Mountain Science Center; and local, state, or federal agencies, private or public, that manage environmental quality.
Be a stronger candidate for a health care graduate school (med school, anyone?) and earn course credit for your clinical shadowing experience. We’ll connect you with some great options.
Biology Beside Experienced & Faithful Scientists
Study Biology in a Useful Sequence
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
