I am interested in taking the Microbiology degree that is offered by the University of Florida online. I understand that the majority of schools do not accept the prerequistes to be done online, so I am currently taking them at a campus. However, I work as a Firefighter/Paramedic and am on a shift schedule so it makes it difficult to take a full course load due to the changing days of shift. This program is very appealing to me. All of the lectures are video material taken straight from the actual lecture on the campus. The labs are done at a school in your area so that you are able to get the hands on experience of Microbiology and ask questions to your professor if need be. I have done some research and it seems that there is zero indication that this is an "online" bachelors degree. The way the department talks about it is that it is a regular Bachelors in Microbiology degree that you would receive just as if you went to the school. My question is, has anyone taken this and applied to medical school? or has anyone had any succes speaking to medical schools about this program? Your opinon and any knowledge you hold will be greatly appreciated. http://microbiology.ifas.ufl.edu/ <----- you can check out the program at that link if you would like.
