What makes us different?

  • We teach the life sciences from a Christian viewpoint including the origin of life and bioethics.
  • We affirm God as the Creator of all and believe that highly significant physical evidence exists to support this belief.
  • We provide advising for our students that is supportive and personal.
  • We implement hands-on learning in laboratories and in clinical observations.

During your time at LeTourneau, you will have the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research projects with members of our faculty. Students on the Wheels team are ensuring disabled children in Kenya have functional wheelchairs.
