Can I Study Pre-Med at Marietta College?
Marietta College, like many other colleges, does NOT offer a single pre-med or pre-health professions major, as there are many possible paths to embarking on careers in these areas. For many students, majors in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Health Science or Athletic Training provide the background needed for medical, dental, veterinary, optometry and other professional schools. Other students pursue other majors being careful to complete the prerequisite science courses required by the professional schools they would like to attend. However, requirements for such schools differ greatly, and for this reason the College offers students access to designated faculty members who assist students to prepare for success in these fields. Additionally, the College’s Career Center staff provides individual advising so that students have the necessary support and resources as they plan their pre-med and pre-health occupation paths. Marietta College also has a Student Health Professions Club that meets regularly and hosts events that focus on getting into medical and other health professional graduate programs. For more information on the courses needed to enter medical and other health professions graduate programs, as well as resources to plan your medical/health-related career, contact
