At a glance: Molecular Biology
"I will use my extensive background in field and molecular biology to pursue research in plant evolution, ecology and genetics. I will be entering graduate school for my Ph.D. at Indiana University in fall 2010. I would like to become a research professor at a university and continue my explorations."

Major: Molecular biology
A biological science education at Ohio Northern University includes the development of a strong foundation through investigative, integrative and conceptual approaches, along with encouragement of individual specialization. These specializations include field, forensic, molecular and organismal biology, or allied health sciences (medical laboratory science and pre-professional health programs).
Molecular biology majors earn a bachelor of science degree.
Off-campus facilities include a 300-acre wetland restoration project, forensic body farm and the ONU Metzger Nature Center in eastern Ohio. The new Mathile Center for the Natural Sciences complex includes cadaver-dissection laboratories, a teaching museum and herbarium, and laboratories for aquatics, forensics, nursing and medical laboratory sciences. In addition, this complex will provide new facilities for teaching, student and faculty research, and seminars/conferences.
