Participate in research projects, use state-of-the-art lab facilities and receive personal guidance from experienced faculty from your first year at Marietta. Whether your goal is graduate school or a medical profession, you will be well prepared for your future.

With biochemistry, you will study the chemistry of living organisms, an ideal starting point for a career in research or a health-related field. You will work with professors from both the biology and chemistry departments and design an individual capstone research project in collaboration with a faculty mentor. Our laboratories are well equipped with the latest technology and instrumentation, everything from a modern cell and molecular biology lab and student research lab to a networked Fourier-transform infrared spectrophotometer and gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer.

Our extensive professional connections enable students to follow local physicians on hospital rounds, intern with chemical companies in the region like DuPont, GE Plastics, Chevron and Hoffmann-LaRoche, and engage in research at major universities and government laboratories. Opportunities are also available through our chapter of Beta Beta Beta, the national biology honor society.
