Because we are living in an increasingly scientific world, general science literacy is important in many fields from business to politics. If you have a non-science major but are fascinated by the scientific study of the earth, human body, plants, atmosphere, classification, and other aspects of science, Maranatha offers a great science minor from a Christian perspective.
You’ll receive a useful introduction to earth science, life science, and physical science, along with an understanding of basic knowledge, methods, and limitations of the field of science. If you hope to teach science someday, consider a Science Education major.
Mandy Blumer (‘05) says the best thing about her new job as a physician assistant is that she can be grown up and still not be compelled to decide what she wants to be when she grows up.
“If I get bored with family practice, I can go to cardiology,” Blumer said. “If I get bored with cardiology, I can go to internal medicine. If I get bored with that, I can go to pediatrics. Being a physician assistant gives you tons of flexibility. The other great thing is, you don’t have to be on call, you don’t have to work weekends—you can actually have a life.”
The Maranatha graduate (General Studies major, Science minor) completed her master’s degree from Marquette University’s physician assistant program on May 23, 2010, and passed her Wisconsin state board examination a week later.
