BS Biology (Pre-Med) Major

Toccoa Falls College
Campus Full time 126 hours September 2017 USA Toccoa Falls

The Biology/Chemistry Department at Toccoa Falls College is located in the Clary Science Building and offers essential training in the natural sciences for the liberal arts curriculum taught from a Biblical perspective. [+]

Bachelors 2017 in Georgia USA. The Biology/Chemistry Department at Toccoa Falls College is located in the Clary Science Building and offers essential training in the natural sciences for the liberal arts curriculum taught from a Biblical perspective, with special emphasis on these areas of study: Biology Major: Every major area of biological study is included in the major courses, along with general and organic chemistry, physics, and biochemistry. Pre-medical: TFC has a strong record of placement of graduates in medical schools, including acceptance of TFC students at Georgia Health Sciences University (MCG), University of Tennessee, and Mercer University. All of the courses required or recommended by medical schools are offered on campus. Pre-nursing: TFC has had many students enter nursing programs, both at the bachelor’s and master’s levels. We have articulation agreements with Brenau and Piedmont University Schools of Nursing and offer all of the courses required to satisfy the requirements for entry into any nursing school in the region. Education Careers: The Science Department works closely with the Teacher Education Department to provide courses that meet the strict requirements of Georgia state certification, both in basic and secondary science education areas. Sustainability Minor: With a developing emphasis on proper use of resources and a desire to better motivate and equip students in a mission setting to think through allocation priorities, TFC has added a sustainability minor that covers ecology, public health in a global setting, and practical exercises. What do I get to do as a Biology major at TFC? – Study and dissect cool animals – Grow your own special germs – Mate fruit flies – Watch your professor set off fire alarms – Build massive molecular models to illustrate structure – Rescue goldfish from insulin shock – Do “streaking” on the TFC campus (bacterial plates) – Analyze classmates’ DNA to see if they have committed a crime No, REALLY, what do I get to do as a Biology major at TFC? – You will get close attention from the Biology professors. Classes vary from 5-30 students, and most labs have 8-10 students. Unlike larger schools, lab assistants are not used, so that one-on-one contact with the professor is increased. – For students who need help negotiating the complicated requirements of pre-med, pre-nursing, or teacher education, a strong effort is made to provide needed academic counseling and advice by the science professors. – Close association with the teaching staff also translates into opportunities for medical mission work, as well as help and references for off-campus research opportunities. – Science teachers at TFC include a Ph.D. with a purely academic background, a Ph.D. with an industrial background, and an M.D. with 25 years of clinical background and a year of seminary training. – The varied background, training, experience, and philosophies of the science professors enable graduates from the science program here to critically evaluate differing viewpoints in the world of science, a world that has become increasingly varied. – The “bottom line” for all of this is the opportunity presented to students, both majors and non-majors, to develop an intentional integration of faith and learning in the natural sciences, with applications in practical areas including bioethics, origins, and apologetics. J.V. (2010): The most appealing aspect of the Biology Department at Toccoa Falls is the accessibility of the faculty. As a science major at TFC, you will have the rare opportunity to sit down with professors and discuss anything from organic chemistry to medical school admissions to spirituality. Not only are they generally supportive of your academic and career goals, but they are actively involved in making you into the student God would have you to be. Another reason I would choose biology again if I could go back is because of the variety of places the degree can take you, especially in the current job market. While some majors offer only intellectual development, biology offers rigorous intellectual development while also opening doors into health care, biotechnology, and graduate school, to name a few.

Bachelors 2017 in Georgia USA. The Engineering Studies Program at the University of West Georgia offers students a number of exciting and attractive options. The tangible and real benefits of starting your engineering program at UWG include our smaller, more personalized classes in a pleasant environment close to Atlanta, courses taught by real professors skilled in teaching, and lower costs at a medium-sized university closer to home. We have 3 basic plans: RETP (Regents Engineering Transfer Program) or 2+2 with Georgia Tech. This plan allows students to spend two years at UWG in a specially designed engineering track before transferring to Georgia Tech. Basic math, science and engineering courses plus core curriculum courses are taken at UWG and then the student transfers to Georgia Tech for the remaining two years. At the completion of the program, a BS in engineering is awarded by Georgia Tech in one of the following: Aerospace Engineering Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Computer Engineering Electrical Engineering Industrial Engineering Materials Science and Engineering Mechanical Engineering Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Textile and Fiber Engineering While at UWG, RETP students enjoy many of the advantages of Tech students: they have equal access to engineering majors at Tech, can participate in the highly successful Co-op program, and they are invited every spring for campus tours, information sessions, and meetings with advisors in their engineering major. At that meeting, the students who will be transferring to Tech the coming Fall Semester can preregister for their classes. Admission to the Program 1. If qualified, you can enter the RETP program when you first enroll at UWG. The minimum requirements are: (a) a combined SAT score of at least 1090 (including a minimum of 560 on the math and 440 on the verbal portions); and (b) a high school GPA of at least 3.0; OR (c) have been admitted to an engineering program at Georgia Tech. 2. If you do not meet the initial admission criteria, you may enter the RETP after the end of your freshman year by: (a) completing the first chemistry and first physics courses and Calculus I and II with grades of 3.0 (B) or higher; and (b) attaining a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. 3. Finally, students who complete the courses included in the first two years of the desired Tech engineering program with a GPA of 2.7 or higher in those courses may be admitted to the RETP at the discretion of the Georgia Tech RETP coordinator. Also, to be eligible for the RETP, you must be a legal resident of Georgia. Dual Degree or 3+2. This program allows a student in approximately 5 academic years to obtain both a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics (advisor: Dr. Julie Talbot - jtalbot@westga.edu), or Chemistry (advisor: Dr. Sharmistha Basu-Dutt sbdutt@westga.edu) from UWG and an engineering degree from an approved engineering school: Georgia Tech, Mercer, Auburn or Southern Tech. Three years are spent at UWG taking the basic core and major courses. Then the student transfers to the engineering school for the remainder of the program. After approximately one more year, the student has enough credits to graduate from UWG with a BS in Chemistry, or Physics. An additional year completes the requirements for the engineering degree, which is awarded by the engineering school. Triple Degree or 3+3. A new program with the School of Textile and Fiber Engineering at Georgia Tech has been initiated by which a student can attend UWG for 3 years, majoring in physics, and then attend Georgia Tech for 3 years and receive 3 degrees: a BS in Physics from UWG, a BS in Textile Engineering from Tech AND an MS from Tech in Textile and Fiber Engineering. Additional Information: The Engineering Studies Program at UWG is under the direction of Dr. Sharmistha Basu-Dutt, Coordinator of the Engineering Studies Program. [-]
