Begin your university studies in Biology with two years at Tyndale. You’ll build a knowledge base for further study in the life sciences while learning how scientific understanding can enrich and inform the life of faith. In years three and four, you’ll continue your work at Nipissing University, and graduate with either a BSc or BSc Honours degree in Biology.
Biology and Faith
To enjoy the earth and its creatures, and to care for them as faithful stewards of what we’ve been given, should be among the goals of all thoughtful Christians. The study of biology is a wonderful lens by which to examine and appreciate the intricacy and wonder of the world of living things. And the more we understand, the better equipped we will be as stewards and interpreters of what has been entrusted to us.
The Foundations of Science
Investigate the intricate web of living things as you study biology at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Learn about evolutionary biology in a university setting that probes the philosophical and religious assumptions that support all scientific theorizing. Gain an appreciation of the insights of scientists who may work out of a belief system very different from your own. And begin to see, in the history and philosophy of scientific enquiry, how worldview shapes and motivates the discovery of knowledge.
