Academic Affairs

At Marietta College, we strive to help our students develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in the classroom, the work world, and all aspects of life.

To be educated requires a pioneering spirit. Seek out what is new. Learn a new language, study abroad, conduct research with a faculty mentor, perform service learning, take a class in a subject you know nothing about, and explore the Legacy Library. The faculty and staff members in Academic Affairs are here as guides in the exciting journey of intellectual exploration. At Marietta College, Academic Affairs partners with all areas of the College to ensure that academic and co-curricular experiences are a rich and rewarding preparation for a future career.
