Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Emphasizing independent research and one-on-one collaboration with faculty members, Gettysburg's interdisciplinary biochemistry-molecular biology major requires study in the biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics departments, consistent with recommendations of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Students gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art biochemical analysis and recombinant DNA technology as they examine the structures and chemical reactions within living cells. A capstone research project frequently results in professional publications co-authored by students and professors or presentations at scientific meetings.
Students receive excellent preparation for graduate study, medical school, or careers in a broad range of fields.
