At Trevecca, we aim to provide our biology students with a broad understanding of the discipline, from the molecular basis of life to the integration of life processes regulating the function of whole organisms. By emphasizing critical thinking, scientific communication and laboratory skills, we seek to prepare students to succeed in scientific careers and graduate programs. Whether you are looking to enter the medical field or want to learn more about how science impacts the modern world, Trevecca's Bachelor of Science in Biology program will get you where you want to be.

Earning your degree in an atmosphere where academic rigor meets strong Christian community, means you’ll be able to take full advantage of our newly renovated facilities and state-of-the-art equipment without sacrificing your values or beliefs.

Our professors all hold the most advanced degrees in their fields, and come from a wide range backgrounds from diverse culture, academic and professional. This diversity allows students to learn, grow and challenge their perspectives. 

Studying biology at Trevecca means getting hands on in your major, from undergraduate research, summer internships, medical missions trips, community education and outreach events, Trevecca’s biology faculty are always looking for new ways to enhance each student’s experience.   

What our students say

"Being involved in cancer research at Trevecca has challenged me to think critically and to look at problems from many different angles. Because I want to work in the medical field and "fix people's problems," I am thankful for the opportunity to do research. I believe that my Trevecca training will help me to be a much more effective and thoughtful healthcare provider in the future."

Anna-Laura Garrow
Biology Major

"As a sophomore in high school, I knew I loved chemistry. When I saw the passion and spark in Professor Alisha Russell, I realized how much I loved biology as well. I was blessed with the opportunity to join a new cancer research group with Dr. Russell last year. My experience with this group helped me be accepted into a highly competitive internship for chemistry at the University of Kansas."
