The student should be aware that most graduate programs in physical therapy require an overall minimum GPA of 3.0, therefore, all courses must be completed with a "C' grade (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher. HUMAN BIOLOGY: PRE-CHIROPRACTIC EMPHASIS (74 UNITS) A Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology with an emphasis in pre-Chiropractic is offered in cooperation with Los Angeles College of Chiropractic at the Southern California University of Health Sci ences upon completion of the university baccalaureate and major requirements. Students attend Biola for three years taking courses in biology, chemist ry, physics, biblical stud ies and the liberal arts. The upper division biology courses are taken at Los Angeles College of Chiropractic the final year. Upon successful completion of the pro gram, the student receives a B.S. degree with a major in Human Biol ogy from Biola . Upon successful completion of the entire chiropractic program and examinations the student receives the D.C. degree from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. The student should be aware that LACC has a minimum GPA require ment of 2.5, and that all transfer courses must be completed with a "C' grade (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher. The minimum required pre-chiropractic courses taken at Biola are: Biology 111, 111 L, 112, 112 L, 252,281; Chemistry 105, 106,301,302,311,312; Physics 111, 112; either Math 101,105, or 210; Psychology 200. Ethics is strongly recommended. The upper division biology course requirements to be taken at LACC are Anatomy, Physiology and Histology I, II and 111, and Human Biochemistry.
Mission & Goals The mission of the Department of Biological Sciences at Biola University is to provide an academically stimulating and challenging environment for intellectual and spiritual growth; preparing students to pursue careers as scientists to pursue careers as scientists, health car professionals, and teachers. Ou r goals are that upon graduation each student will be able to demonstrate:
, . Knowledge of the practice of science and scientific methodol ogy;
2 . Understanding and knowledge of the biomolecular bas is of life;
3 . Understanding of the diversity of organismal form, structure and function, and the relationship of the organisms to one another and the environment; 4. Understanding of the integration of faith and learning as it re lates to the biological sciences through the lens of intelligent design, and to practice as good stewards of creat ion. Degree Program A Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Science or a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology is offered upon completion of the university baccalaureate and major requirements. The biological sci ence major requires the completion of the following.
