About

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Otterbein University  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.

Overview

Research and internships will prepare you for any opportunity you encounter. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology majors at Otterbein University 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.

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.

Following graduation, many of our students enter graduate programs in the sciences, medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physician’s assistant school, genetic counseling, or optometry. Others enter work directly for biotech companies, area research facilities, and hospitals. This degree also provides a solid foundation for other careers in education, business, marketing, law, and public policy.

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major is an interdisciplinary major supported by the Department of Biology and Earth Science and the Department of Chemistry with disciplinary accreditation and approval through the American Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
