The BA in Biological Studies at Eastern University prepares students for immediate entrance into careers in laboratory or biology-related field work. 


Biological Studies students from Eastern University have similar requirements to the B.S. in Biology, but one, rather than two, years of Chemistry is required, there is a required course in Biotechnology, an internship is required, and there is a wider range of electives.

Why Choose Eastern?

  • Personalized teaching: Our largest classes (60-80 students) are our two introductory courses. Otherwise, upper level courses have approximately 20 students or less. Senior research and thesis classes are limited to 5 students. Students can have extensive faculty contact both during and outside of classes and have diverse course offerings each semester.
  • Faculty research and service: Students can receive credit in directed research projects working with professors in their area of expertise.
  • Christian faith integration: We seek to integrate a Christian worldview - truth God has revealed in the Bible - with our study of the measurable. This includes wrestling with the best responses to new knowledge and technologies, whether issues of global climate change, applications of genetics or issues surrounding evolution.
