Math & Science

A high demand exists for trained professionals in biomedical and health care fields. The Math and Science Department seeks to prepare students for health care professional programs of study and careers that require math and science skills. The department offers degrees that will prepare students for pre-medicine, pre-veterinary, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy, pre-occupational therapy, pre-physical therapy, pre-nursing, pre-dental hygiene, pre-radiological technician, pre-respiratory therapy, pre-dietician as well as the foundation for applying for PhD programs in the sciences.

The science center is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratory and teaching technologies, and includes two chemistry labs, three biology labs, and two research labs. Three Bachelor of Science degree programs are offered: Biology, Health Sciences, and Biotechnology. A Bachelor of Arts in Biology degree is also offered to students wishing to work in the administrative health care field. An Associate of Arts with Science Emphasis is also available for students entering specialized health sciences degree or certification programs. Students pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Science are required to participate in mentored hands-on research activities on campus.

Pre-Professional Programs
As a result of increased job opportunities, better pay, and the many scientific advances that have been made over the past few years, many students are considering a career as a health care practitioner.


Central Baptist College wants to help those students prepare for such a challenging profession. We offer many pre-professional programs, which prepare our students for transfer to such schools as the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.


The pre-professional programs include: biomedical instrumentation technology, cytotechnology, dental hygiene, medical technology, nuclear medicine technology, radiological technology, respiratory care, surgical technology, physical therapy assistant, physical therapy, home economics, home economics-dietetics, nursing, occupational therapy, pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-veterinary, pre-biotechnology graduate programs, entry level careers in biotechnology, speech language pathology, pre-dentistry, pre-optometry, wildlife management, pharmaceutical or health equipment representatives, health management, professionals and those with professional health science certificates wishing to obtain a bachelor’s degree.
