Online Bachelor of Science Program

Students who are interested in research, the life sciences, or submitting competitive applications for professional school (medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, etc.) are in luck! The Department of Microbiology and Cell Science now offers an online BS degree in Microbiology. The program is designed to allow students to complete two years of prerequisites at universities, colleges, or community colleges within the state of Florida and then to transfer into the online Microbiology degree at UF as a junior.

The program is instructed by the same UF faculty and staff that manage the synchronous undergraduate courses on campus, and gives students the opportunity at a strong science education that will prepare them for professional school and successful careers in the life sciences, while still offering the flexibility of an online degree program.
