Welcome! Davenport University’s Science Department provides a focused foundation in science skills that enable Biological Lab Science, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Allied Health students to succeed in their professional programs.

A Bachelor’s degree in Biological Laboratory Science (BLS) is offered, which can be used as a pre-health professional program or can launch a career in a biotechnology field.  Throughout the year, the science department welcomes area schools to visit and explore college opportunities in science. During the summer, the science department hosts forensic science camps for high school students around the state of Michigan.  Please enjoy reviewing more about our science faculty and our program.
