Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is the branch of science that examines life at the molecular level. Students will use the basic tools of chemistry and biology to dissect how organisms, cells, and molecules function. This major is rigorous, but provides flexibility to adapt to a student’s individual interests.
Small class sizes (generally under 14 students) mean that you will have plenty of individualized attention from your professors. Classes are held in the state of the art Science Center. Learn more about our facilities and equipment.
Research and internships will prepare you for any opportunity you encounter. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology majors are required to complete a research requirement for graduation. This requirement can be fulfilled by a research based laboratory course, independent research studies at Otterbein or in nationally recognized summer research programs. Learn more about research at Otterbein.
We also work with students to help match them with area hospitals, veterinarians, dentists, and pharmacists to provide the relevant internship and volunteer experience that is so crucial for future success.
