Life Actually Begins Here

A biology major opens doors to a variety of fields. You develop robust critical thinking and analytical skills which provide the foundation for further study towards careers in academia and research as well as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy, chiropractic medicine and other professional fields. Our graduates have selected careers in forensic science, biotechnology and education.

The C-SC Difference

Our Genomics Research Initiative offers first year students with no prior research experience the opportunity to conduct scientific experiments in a laboratory setting while also collaborating with, and contributing to, a national alliance that sources data from multiple laboratories across the United States. You will be taught by a diverse faculty of professionals from four countries and three continents, all of whom hold or are completing terminal degrees in the field. Our facilities have updated equipment to train biologists for the 21st century. If medical school is your next step, we have partnership agreements with American University of Antigua College of Medicine and Kansas City University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

I am grateful for the variety of experiences and growth I had during my time as an undergraduate at Culver-Stockton – from helping serve as an Anatomy tutor to studying field biology in Belize. As I enter my last year of medical school, I am thankful to have achieved this milestone because I had amazing professors like Dr. El-Bermawy in my corner.
