Toccoa Falls College

Introduction

Toccoa Falls College is a Christ-centered educational institution that prepares men and women for vocational and professional occupations. The college is located in the foothills of the northeast Georgia mountains. TFC currently offers 29 majors and 39 minors within three schools: Professional Studies, Arts and Sciences, and Christian Ministries.

Graduates serve throughout the United States and around the world fulfilling the dream of founder Dr. R. A. Forrest, who said: "The sun never sets on the graduates of Toccoa Falls College."

Mission Statement

The mission of Toccoa Falls College is to glorify God through seeking and developing Christian servant leaders who will impact their world with the love and message of Jesus Christ.

Mission Distinctives

Toccoa Falls College is an educational institution, a character-building enterprise, and a spiritual formation community, all integrated into a unique way of life. Its primary purpose is to glorify God through offering residential programs that prepare men and women for lives of personal fulfillment and Christian servant leadership to the church and the world. It also seeks to glorify God through offering non-residential Christ-centered programs to the community at large.

Mission Goals

  • Spiritual: to orient, motivate, and lead students to emotional maturity, Christian commitment, and spiritual depth
  • Academic: to provide an understanding of the Bible as the basis for Christian life and thought within the context of the college statement of faith, and to introduce students to the cumulative knowledge of the ages
  • Intellectual: to stimulate students to develop inquisitive and creative minds that possess tools for critical analysis, and to motivate them for continuing intellectual pursuits
  • Moral: to provide the atmosphere, motivation, and support system for developing Biblically based lifestyles of wholesome attitudes and ethical principles
  • Professional: to produce graduates competent for Christian service to humanity in the areas of their individual choices

Vision Statement

Toccoa Falls College will be known as a premier Christian college that uniquely integrates biblical truth, academic excellence and intentional spiritual formation within a caring Christian community.

TFC Statement of Faith

Toccoa Falls College shall teach and defend the historic and basic doctrines of evangelical Christianity such as:

  • The verbal inspiration of the Holy Scriptures as originally given;
  • The existence and manifestation of one God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  • The incarnation and virgin birth of the Son of God;
  • The redemption of man by the vicarious death of Christ on the cross;
  • The bodily resurrection from the grave;
  • The fact that all men have sinned and consequently must be regenerated by the working of God’s grace;
  • Justification by faith;
  • The sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in the believer, producing holiness of life and power for service;
  • Practical faith in the sufficiency of Christ for spiritual, temporal and physical needs;
  • The purifying hope of the Lord’s imminent return; and
  • The urgency of preaching the gospel to all mankind, that men may be saved from eternal judgment.
  • The said college, even though non-sectarian, is to be conducted according to the faith and teaching of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.

Note: The Statement of Faith cannot be changed or amended as per the constitution. The Board of Trustees adopted a statement in October 1999 that it is understood that the said college would be conducted according to the faith and teaching of the Christian and Missionary Alliance as they were in 1955.

Why TFC

At Toccoa Falls College we have had the same mission since 1907. That mission is simple. Our mission is: Developing character with intellect. When we talk about developing character we are speaking about developing Godly character. In order to provide our college community with some guidance for the development of Godly character we use four cornerstones that include:

Scripture: We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, authoritative word of God. As such, the Bible provides all the direction we need to develop Godly character.

Truth: We believe that there are absolute truths revealed by God. In spite of competing worldviews in our culture today, we understand that God’s absolute truths will always withstand the test of time.

Wisdom: We understand that the amassing of facts can be pointless without the integration of knowledge and Biblical understanding. We also realize the importance of seeking God’s wisdom over human wisdom. True understanding comes from God.

Service: We clearly understand the Bible makes it clear that we are to serve others both locally and globally. Our students, faculty, and staff serve our local community, region, state, nation, and support folks in countries all around the globe.

BS Biology (Pre-Med) Major

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. [+]

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.
