Liberty is a Faith Baseed U, but unlike others of such a worldview,(like Notre Dame, or Brigham Young) Liberty does not teach biological sciences as a "evidence based science". Liberty , as recent as 2008 taught Creationism and Evolution as equal SCIENCE arguments and ends the program with "we will let the students decide". (many of the rest of the courses that are not science will heavily target natural science based biology as wrongheaded and will, instead be stressing the "correctness" of Creationism and ID).
Consequently, while Liberty is FULLY accredited by the SOuthern States Accreditation Commission , nothing is ever mentioned about programs that are NOT included in that accreditation.(Accreditation also means that the school that is accredited is available to receive Fed DE grants in aid for program development) Biology was NOT, accredited as far as my last dealings with this college which was in 2008, things may have changed .
Youve gotta watch and be careful about transferrability of any credits that you may count on in the natural sciences. Liberty , is, accredited for several other programs like Accounting, Business Management,all Kinds of Computer "SCience", English Lit, Civil Engineering, etc etc.
As far at Patten, Ive actually never heard of that one before . Im going to do some searching around.
