With Marietta’s health science major, you will gain a solid background in biology, chemistry and physics, with opportunities to tailor your program to Psychology, Sports Medicine or other areas of interest to you. The major is highly interdisciplinary, and will expand your skills and career opportunities by helping you build connections between the liberal arts and health-related fields.
You will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for microbiology, cadaver anatomy, cell biology, molecular biology and other fields. Many students intern in other research facilities and participate in physician rounds at Marietta Memorial Hospital. As a senior, you will work closely with faculty in either Biology or Sports Medicine on an independent research project. Graduates have an excellent track record of graduate school acceptances and health career success.
Marietta also offers a master’s degree program that prepares students to become physician assistants. The program’s job placement record is excellent; many students secure positions with the physicians or hospitals where they completed clinical rotations.
