The online biological sciences program spans investigations into genetic and environmental causes of diversity, how organisms evolve, the interplay of organisms and their environments, and how these factors influence health and disease. The curriculum aligns with the broad scientific competencies recommended for premed students in a report of the American Medical Colleges and the Howard Hughes Medical Committee and reflected in the 2015 changes to the MCAT. The degree includes all chemistry, biochemistry, math and physics courses needed to prepare students for the MCAT or medical school admissions, as well as any graduate program in biology.
Students may be required to attend an on-campus lab on the Tempe, Arizona campus, or fulfill the requirement via transfer credit.
