GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 26, 2022) – Andrew Garland joined the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Division of Health Sciences in the School of Health Professions.
He earned a BA and an MEd from BJU, an MA in philosophy from Virginia Tech, and a PhD in philosophy from the University of Virginia. He was named Hecht-Levi Fellow at the Berman Institute of Bioethics, Johns Hopkins University (also affiliated with the National Institute of Health Collaboratory Ethics and Regulatory Core).
He has presented at numerous conferences and workshops.
“The division welcomes Andrew back to campus as a member of faculty. His educational background combined with his recent stint as a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University positions him well to teach classes on ethics in research and biomedicine,” said Dr. Amy Hicks, Division of Health Sciences chair. “He will also teach philosophy courses in the School of Religion. Students will greatly benefit from his depth of experience!”
This academic year, he will be teaching Ancient and Medieval Philosophy and Research Ethics.
“I’m looking forward to helping continue the educational excellence of BJU,” said Garland. “I personally benefited from the wonderful faculty, and I hope to carry on that tradition with my students.”
Garland and his wife, Melanie, have two children.
