Center for Creation Studies

The Center for Creation Studies is an interdisciplinary education and research institute committed to the study of the origin of the universe, the earth, life, and diversification of species. This study draws upon knowledge from religion, science, philosophy, and history.

The primary educational activity of the Center is the presentation of CRST 290, History of Life and CRST 390, Origins. These courses provide introductory and in-depth investigations, respectively, into the current creation-evolution controversy by surveying evidence and arguments from a diversity of intellectual fields and from various viewpoints and perspectives.

Exhibits, currently located in the Science Hall, teach concepts of the creation model, describe creationist research, and glorify the Creator of the heavens and the Earth.


The purpose of the Center for Creation Studies is to promote the development of a consistent biblical view of origins in our students. The Center seeks to equip students to contend for their faith in the creation account in Genesis using science, reason, and the Scriptures. The minor in Creation Studies provides a flexible program with a broad training in various disciplines that relate to origins as well as the Bible. Students in both science or non-science majors will benefit from an in-depth study of creation and evolution.
