Why Choose Science at Biola?

The Lim Center represents the beginning of an exciting new era for science education at Biola University. Students majoring in the science or health-related fields can expect not only academic rigor, but academic rigor set in the engaging, high-tech setting the Lim Center offers. Here is just some of what sets Biola’s School of Science, Technology and Health apart.

Strength in Science

Biola is cultivating a global reputation as a leader integrating science education with the philosophy of science and religion, applied ethics and Christian apologetics. The Lim Center’s premier facilities, coupled with faculty expertise and mentorship, will provide a solid foundation for students as the university builds for the future.

Graduate School Preparation

Biola graduates advance to top medical schools and graduate programs across the country, such as UCLA, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Yale, Harvard and MIT. The Lim Center’s laboratories, equipment and overall facilities will allow students to grow as they prepare to pursue postgraduate degrees and careers as leaders in science, technology and health.

Technology

The center’s state-of-the-art technology will help Biola put a special emphasis in a robust program on applied computer science. This, along with addition of computer science and technology competencies in the general education curriculum, will allow students to develop a keen understanding of the technology fields, no matter which major they choose.

Global Health

Demand for health professionals is growing worldwide, and Biola is responding to that growing need by preparing students in the health sciences such as nursing, kinesiology, communication sciences and disorders and other majors in the health professions. With a Biola education, students can pursue meaningful health-related careers at home and abroad.
