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.

Calissa Smith in the crime lab
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.
— Calissa Smith ’07, one of only 12 applicants from around the nation accepted into the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive’s National Firearms Examiner Academy.
