Introductory Anatomy and Physiology, affectionately known as “A & P,” is rumored to be one of the toughest classes on Grand Canyon University’s campus. I’ve taught this course for over 15 years and in that time, I’ve seen two types of students: those who are actively engaged in class and interact with the material by taking notes and asking questions and those who are just there to collect attendance or participation points. Most of the time, the latter type of student is only halfway listening to a lecture, spending time on Facebook or Twitter, or doing homework for another class. Invariably, the students who pay attention are the ones who score higher on exams and get better grades in the class overall.

Computer science is woven into the fabric of our culture and used in almost every field, driving job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. According to an article on LinkedIn, computing occupations are the number one source of all new wages in the U.S., making computer science one of the most in-demand college degrees.

Yet, a 2015 Gallup poll found that about 91 percent of our K-12 parents want their child’s school to teach computer science, but according to a 2016 Gallup poll, only 40 percent of the schools teach it.

Technology is a key part of any business – and this dependence on technology is expected to be a key economic driver across all industries in the U.S. The jobs of tomorrow have yet to be conceived, though the skillset required to flourish in this unknown environment exists today.

Grand Canyon University has responded to the demand for these specialized skills with degree programs from the College of Science, Engineering and Technology that prepare people to work and advance in the technology field. Our goal is to create programs that are not focused on the way things have been done in the past. We instead formed our programs by incorporating the perspectives of key industry leaders.

At Grand Canyon University, a religious foundation permeates all aspects of academic life. Walking around campus, one can observe students holding prayer circles and professors invoking biblical quotes in their lecture classes.

This faith integration is an active pursuit of many faculty at GCU as we progress in our teaching careers. Especially in STEM fields, which have historically been viewed as largely secular and incompatible with religious teachings, a focus on faith integration maintains the mission critical values of the university.
