In a larger sense, this verse captures the essence of the entire outlook of our department. Jesus Christ before all else, and all aspects of life unified in Christ. As scientists and mathematicians, we understand that His hand is “holding together” the very stuff of the physical universe. Our goal as a department is to explore our mandate to be stewards of creation. Specifically, we strive to recognize the hand of God in the logic of mathematics and in the intricate details of matter. The closer you look at what God has made, the more wonderful we find it to be.
Chemistry Program Mission Statement
The Geneva College Chemistry Department exists to serve, educate, and mentor students in the disciplines of Biochemistry and Chemistry. We seek for our students to develop a solid competence in the fundamentals of chemistry as defined by the guidelines for an approved program of the American Chemical Society. We also desire to instill an enthusiasm for the process of discovery and research and an awareness of the tremendous responsibility and the sense of awe that comes with understanding and managing the material aspect of God’s creation.
Physics Program Mission Statement
The mission of the Physics program is to train our students in the understanding and use of the tools, methods, and techniques commonly used in the field of Physics, and lead them to comprehend the underlying physical and theoretical framework used to describe our understanding of the created order. Our motivation for doing so is that we may glorify God through the faithful use of the talents and resources he has provided. Our goal is that our students’ understanding of the structure and design of the created order will instill in them a deeper sense of awe of the glory, majesty, and sovereignty of the Creator God, and that they may also be well prepared to apply their skills and knowledge as they faithfully respond to His calling.
Mathematics Program Mission Statement
The mission of the Applied Mathematics program is to train our students in the knowledge and skills commonly used in the field of mathematics. We believe that God has spoken his Creation in the language of mathematics: that is, mathematics is consistently embedded in all of Creation. Thus, to study God's Creation, one needs a strong understanding of mathematics. The student is expected to obtain a working knowledge of these skills needed to understand the Creation.
