Mathematics & Natural Sciences
In the Division of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, we will help you understand the design of God’s creation through the study of the natural sciences. Our faculty teach the contrast between data and opinion, as well as the difference between data and interpretation of data. In our programs, you will develop your analytical thinking skills through the application of mathematics and natural sciences to practical problems.
When you earn your Bachelor’s degree in Biology from BPC, you will be able to:
- Explain the difference between creation theory and evolutionary theory.
- Apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom through completing an internship within your field of study
- Conduct statistical analysis of data through research and presentations.
- Differentiate between data and opinion, as well as provide strategies to select the best options for data interpretation
- Develop and practice your critical thinking skills.
Program of Study
General Learning Outcomes
Coupled with a robust General Education Program, by the time you earn your degree through BPC, you will gain the overall knowledge, skills, and values associated with a Christian liberal arts education:
Students will demonstrate integrity and respect for self and others in all academic, athletic, career, and other interactions at Brewton-Parker College.
Students will develop critical and creative thinking skills.
Students will write, read, speak, and listen logically, clearly, and precisely
Students will demonstrate numeracy, scientific literacy, and technical competence.
Students will develop an understanding and appreciation of human artistic expression.
Students will develop an understanding of the history of civilizations and of the forces shaping contemporary society.
An important Program Learning Outcome in Our Division is for graduating students to have conducted statistical analysis of data through research and presentations. Students in our Division are required to complete BIO 430 Studies in Biology I and BIO 431 Studies in Biology II during their senior year in the Biology program. Students that meet the minimum requirements of completing BIO 430 and 431 and meet the Georgia Academy of Science standards are encouraged to submit an abstract of their undergraduate research to the Georgia Academy of Science and upon approval, are invited to present their research findings.
