Work alongside professors who have received recognition from the National Institutes of Heath to fund their research.
The emphasis we place on learning through research — on learning by doing — provides students the opportunity to engage in experimentation from their introductory biology courses through their senior capstone research projects. When recent alumnae come back from graduate school or medical school, they tell us that the transition was easy because of all the lab-based work they did in their science courses at Mary Baldwin.
State-of-the-art lab experiences give you a competitive edge.
MBC could not have done a better job preparing me for graduate school. The extensive research I completed during my senior year and defending my thesis showed me how what I learned in the classroom applied to real-world science. It gave me an edge over other graduate school applicants and greater confidence in my speaking abilities.
Become a bold Baldwin woman … at any age.
It is extremely motivating to be with other students who want to be intellectually challenged. The entire campus has basically been my experimental playground. I’ve had a good time here.
