Division of Sciences

The faculty members of the Division of Sciences at Lindenwood University-Belleville seek to explore how we prepare students to make an impact on their society. Students in this division have an opportunity to prepare for a number of exciting careers such as nursing, medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.

Welcome to the Division of Sciences!

Students in this division have an opportunity to prepare for a number of exciting careers such as nursing, medicine, dentistry and pharmacy, and our successful graduates enter the workforce in their fields!

The Division of Sciences offers BS and BA degrees in Biology, BS degree in exercise science, and a 2+2 pre-nursing articulation with Goldfarb School of Nursing to receive a BS degree in nursing. The biology degree is also our pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-veterinary, and other pre-professional degrees. Degrees in biology and exercise science require laboratory experiences and internships, which produce graduates ready to work in science. We train for the critical thinking skills and communication skills employers desire while allowing for students to express their individuality and grow through building their own college experience.



Collin Young"My professors in the Division of Sciences had real-world experience. They weren’t just in a classroom for their career, but have contacts, connections, and experience working outside of education, which I found to be very helpful when deciding what kind of career path I wanted to take. Having the opportunity to conduct hands-on research as an undergraduate student in addition to the cross-curricular education I received at Lindenwood Belleville not only prepared me academically for medical school, but it also heightened my chances of being accepted to medical school in the first place. Research opportunities are easy to find at Lindenwood Belleville and I was able to form personal relationships with most of the faculty. Those aspects are invaluable."

We distinguish our division from our competitors through:

Credentialed Faculty

We recruit professors who bring both academic and professional achievement to the classroom. As a result, all of our full-time faculty members have a doctoral degree in specialty fields.

Extensive Faculty-Student Interaction

We think the effectiveness of education is directly dependent on the quantity and quality of time our students spend with their professors. For that reason all of our classes are small to promote active student participation and all student advising is handled by full-time professors.

Early Student Contact with the Business World

We want our students to develop meaningful contacts with the business leaders of the world before they graduate. We bring guest speakers to our classrooms and provide internship and mentorship opportunities.

Alumnus Starts Med School, Aspiring to Enhance Medical Access to Rural Communities

Collin Young didn’t exactly anticipate the impact that tearing his ACL the summer before his freshman year of college would have on his collegiate career. As a baseball player from Mt. Vernon, Ill., who had accepted a scholarship to play at Lindenwood University-Belleville, he knew his athletic career would be affected and that most of his freshman year on the team would be dedicated to rehabilitation and strengthening his knee.
