Why Study At Andrews?

Christian Education. We seek to advance the rigorous study of biology in relationship to our Creator as set forth in our departmental mission and the mission of Andrews University.

Tradition of Excellence. Andrews University Biology graduates, as a group, score at or above the 85th percentile on the nationally normed major field exam and are much more likely than average to get into graduate or medical schools.

Recently, Andrews was tied for second place in a ranking of the best small colleges in the United States for a STEM degree.

Laboratory facilities include state-of-the-art equipment. Challenging  coursework supports strong academic curricula in biology, biomedical science, behavioral neuroscience, and biotechnology.
