Message from the Dean
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! The School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences (SNBS) at William Carey University strives to improve the scientific literacy of all WCU students by providing a number of excellent opportunities for comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education within a Christian environment. The faculty and staff of SNBS are talented, cohesive, and compassionate Christian individuals who value our roles as mentors and take serious the WCU commitment to foster student excellence. 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 WCU and surrounding community.
Undergraduate majors in the natural and behavioral sciences (biology, chemistry, criminal justice, mathematics, and psychology) are designed to aid students in building highly marketable skills and abilities. Our graduates routinely secure employment in the local community or pursue graduate / professional study in the biological or chemical sciences, mathematics, medical and health occupations, law enforcement, legal studies, business, education, and mental health arenas.
Graduate study within the SNBS currently consists of our Masters of Science degree programs in Biological Science, Counseling Psychology, and the Counselor Education program at the William Carey Traditions campus. Our graduate programs provide students the opportunity and support necessary to develop an advanced understanding and applied skills in their chosen field of study.
Please take a moment to explore the departmental web pages for more specific information on our programs of study, and then contact us to arrange a campus visit. We hope you will elect to join us as we “Expect great things from God and attempt great things for God”.
