Department of Natural Sciences
Welcome to the Department of Natural Sciences
at Malone University
We offer the following Bachelor of Arts Degrees:
- Biology - You can select one of five possible tracks of study: General Biology, Pre-Medicine, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Physician Assistant, and Pre-Veterinary Medicine.
- Biology Clinical Lab Science
You can select one of five possible tracks of study:
Forensic Chemistry, Graduate School, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Medicine, Pre-Pharmacy.
Exercise Science - You can select one of three possible concentrations:
Exercise Physiology, Fitness Promotions and Personal Training Concentration, Pre-Physical Therapy
- Integrated Science Education - You can choose a concentration in Life Science or in Chemistry
- Life Science Education - This major prepares students to be licensed to teach life sciences. Upon completing this program, 38 hours of Professional Education requirements, and other requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree, students will be licensed to teach life science in grades 7-12.
- Life Science/Chemistry Education- This major prepares students to be licensed to teach life science and chemistry. Upon completing this program, 38 hours of Professional Education requirements, and other requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree, students will be licensed to teach life science and chemistry in grades 7-12. Because of the dual nature of this major (life science and chemistry), this major requires more than the standard number of hours and thus could take an additional semester to complete.
- Physical Science Education - This major is a combination of chemistry and physics, that prepares students to teach chemistry and physics in grades 7-12.
- Zoo & Wildlife Biology - The Zoo and Wildlife Biology major is specifically designed to prepare students for careers working with animals and is offered in collaboration with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Theoretical and applied coursework and integrated experiential opportunities are combined in this intensive degree program, which includes several summer school courses, an internship, and a research experience. In addition to CMZ, Malone University has professional partnerships with several local institutions including, but not limited to, Stark Parks Sanders Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, William McKinley Presidential Museum Discover World, Wolf Timbers and Quail Hollow State Park. Malone also maintains an exotic animal collection consisting of a variety of reptiles and several native and exotic mammals.
Immerse Yourself in the Product of God’s Creativity
As part of Malone University’s College of Theology, Arts & Sciences, the Department of Natural Sciences invites you to see that the natural world is an incessant and eloquent testimony of God’s power. To study it and uncover its secrets is to more fully comprehend God’s presence on Earth and in the universe beyond.
Our mission statement:
The Malone University Department of Natural Sciences exists to engage students in the study of God’s majesty and character by exploring His handiwork as it is revealed in nature, both animate and inanimate; to promote the wise and thoughtful stewardship of the natural resources He has entrusted to us; and to encourage students to demonstrate God’s love in their respective communities by using the knowledge and skills they acquire here.
Explore Your Passion for the Natural World
A career spent in the study of biology, zoology, chemistry, and other areas of the natural sciences is a rewarding pursuit for a Christ-centered life.
Perhaps you believe your love of the natural world expresses your appreciation of the splendor of God’s works. If so, a profession that cares for, protects, or illuminates the natural world may suit you perfectly.
At Malone, you’ll pursue your path through hands-on study, field exploration, enriching real-world internships, and the instruction of fellow scientists who share your understanding of God’s hand in the beauty of our natural world.
