"I believe the science program at Providence is an incredible opportunity to help aspiring scientists wrestle with the complex relationship between faith and science and come out strengthened in both. The field of science needs more Christians – people who will look at the world around them and see God’s fingerprints." - Kelsey Zab, 2016 Master of Arts in Global Studies
