Before the vacation, Torie received notification that she had been accepted to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. She applied major in Biology. Pepperdine is a Christian university committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership. Consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful places to study, Pepperdine is where students are inspired to learn as they learn to inspire.
The biology degree program, delivered at Pepperdine’s Seaver College, is designed to provide biology majors with opportunities for experiential learning through hands-on research, small labs, and instruction by professors in both lectures and labs. The College encourages students to take advantage of its summer undergraduate research program as well as the honors program in biology. The degree program is offered as a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and as a Bachelor of Science (BS).
Torie applied for the BS option. Students taking this option receive comprehensive exposure to biological complexity, and the option prepares biology majors for advanced careers in the biological sciences.
Many of these careers involve continuing education through entry into professional schools (e.g., medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, etc.) and graduate school. www.seaver.pepperdine.edu
