Graduate Student Testimony
A university education is always abounding with experiences, which together mold and direct the personal character and future life. For me, Cedarville University and the Environmental Science program not only provided a foundation in the biological sciences, but also the history of critique, theory and debate that brings a man head-on with the current issues of today...where without doubt, Christ and the Judeo-Christian ethic therein, play a vital role. Understanding God in the science laboratory is not an oxymoronic detail as held by many naturalistic scientists who deny the existence of supernatural intervention. I have discovered that I can be both a scientist and a Christian; and, retain my ethical and moral repute. As an environmental science student I was given education that examined the broad spectrum of life and the physical interactions that sustain their existence. I gleaned a geologic foundation in Earth Science and Chemistry, an understanding of all things green and self replicating in Botany and Zoology, and deep insights into philosophy and ethics with Bioethics and Genetics courses. Finally, my undergraduate education would not be complete without the knowledge gleaned at Au Sable's Institute of Environmental Studies where I was privileged to study Marine Biology, Ornithology, and Natural History of the Pacific Northwest. In short, Cedarville University afforded me the proper direction and care that students of science need for success and has positively influenced me as a master's degree student seeking a career in ecology.
