Outside the Classroom

Take your learning to the next level

Classroom learning provides the foundation of your education, but Mercer University’s Biochemistry and Molecular Biology program encourages you to put that knowledge to use in the real world. This will allow you to not only build your skills but also contribute to bettering the world around you.
