Education within a Christian environment.

Our students are challenged to expand their analytical skills, gain hands-on experience within a number of field settings, and develop a spirit of service that will benefit the William Carey community as well as communities throughout the world. Through these learning opportunities, science students master knowledge and skills that are foundational to the pursuit of professional and graduate degrees and marketable to a variety of educational, healthcare, and business settings.

Get Started

Enriching life through study.

We are here to assist you in furthering your educational and career aspirations.
