Walt Sinnamon, PhD, Chair

The mission of the Division of Science at Southern Wesleyan University is to prepare students to confront globally important issues in a rapidly changing world with skills in discipline-specific content, communication, information processing, analysis, synthesis and problem solving. Students are encouraged to view their studies from a Christian worldview as our faculty emphasize faith and learning in the various disciplines and to utilize their knowledge and skills in serving God and humankind. Our graduates are expected to be well-prepared academically, to be committed to exemplary ethical standards, and to be comfortable with being identified as Christians in their chosen vocations.

The Division of Science offers the BA degree with a major in Chemistry, and the BS degree with majors in Computer Information Systems, Biology, Biology Education, Pre-medicine/Pre-dentistry, Chemistry, Forensic Science, Mathematics, Mathematics Education, and Exercise Science. Additional courses are offered in physics and physical science. The chair of the division and the health professions advisor are available to assist students wishing to prepare for graduate or professional school such as medical school, graduate study in a science field, physical therapy, or health information administration, or who wish to transfer to a specialized program such as nursing, veterinary medicine, podiatry, cytotechnology, or education.

All majors in Biology, Biology Education, Chemistry, Forensic Science, Mathematics, Mathematics Education, and Pre-medicine/Pre-dentistry are required to take the Major Field Test in the major area as freshmen and as seniors. In addition, Biology Education and Mathematics Education majors are required to take the Praxis II exams.
