Division of Science

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 Applied Computer Science, Biology, Biology Education, Chemistry, Forensic Science, Computer Information Systems, Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Pre-medicine/Pre-dentistry, Exercise Science, and Environmental Studies. 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, or cytotechnology.

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.

 

SC Region 1 Science Fair

Science fairs provide an opportunity for students, 3rd through 12th grades, who are interested in science and technology to pursue their personal areas of interest and to display their research as a presentation in a public competitive forum. The fair gives area students the chance to compete for cash awards and other prizes.

The Regional Science Fair at Southern Wesleyan University serves the counties of Anderson, Abbeville, Laurens, Greenville, Greenwood, Oconee, and Pickens and works to create enthusiasm in science and technology through project-based inquiry.
