Department of Natural Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Natural Sciences

The Department of Natural Sciences strives to help students develop a strong science background and critical thinking skills through meaningful experiences in and out of the classroom. The department aims to prepare students for productive professional careers or for entry into graduate or professional schools. Balancing an interdisciplinary science foundation, the department maintains allegiance to Christian values, including faith, stewardship, ethics, and social responsibility.

GWU’s Department of Natural Sciences offers two majors: biology and chemistry. Graduates from these programs receive comprehensive instruction in their discipline within the context of a Christian environment.
