Prepare for success in professional school, graduate school, and the job market with an undergraduate or graduate degree from the Department of Biology & Chemistry at Liberty University.
Here, you'll get the type of hands-on training you’ll need to pursue your career with confidence.
Conduct research in one of the Center for Natural Sciences' state-of-the-art research labs. And work alongside credentialed and experienced professors who share your love for Christ.
Teaching spaces in the Center for Natural Sciences include a cadaver lab that is open to select undergraduate biomedical science students and 20 major-specific teaching labs and 6 research labs. Professional-level research equipment includes a gene sequencer, tissue culture facility, fluorescent microscope, LICOR imager, and more.
Learn from faculty who are experienced in academia, industry, and government and who hold doctoral degrees from leading institutions nationwide. And immerse yourself in engaging research projects where you could study algae biofuels, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, DNA analysis, crayfish parasites, and more.

Because of this program, I walked into an internship more than prepared for what was expected of me and was very well equipped to begin my graduate program this fall.
It was a great experience attending small classes and having plenty of one-on-one interactions with professors who are knowledgeable in their fields and most importantly caring about your professional development. I got into my top choice Ph.D. program, and I credit the role my professors played in my time in the LU chem program for this.
The facilities and instrumentation we have at LU have given me an educational experience I couldn’t have received anywhere else. At both of the internships I’ve had, my employers are always impressed that I’ve had the opportunity to work with instruments like HPLC, GC/MS, and FTIR.
The chemistry program at Liberty University prepared me for the graduate program at Old Dominion University by allowing me to gain research experience. Graduate school in the sciences is all about research.
