PORTLAND, Ore. — Two new majors at Multnomah reflect the care and concern our students have not only for humanity, but also for the environment. Beginning in fall 2017, students will have the opportunity to major in exercise science and environmental science for the first time in school history.

Dr. Daniel Scalberg, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, says environmental science is a natural fit for a school that’s deeply committed to maintaining the quality of life we enjoy in the Pacific Northwest. “As stewards, we seek to be responsible keepers of God’s earth,” says Scalberg. “We have a Genesis mandate to take proper care of the world we live in.”

Scalberg added that exercise science is a great option for students who want to pursue careers in a variety of fields, including sports medicine. “We deeply care about humanity, because it’s the humanity Christ cares for,” he says. “These sciences are ways to invest in eternal purposes.”
