New Biology Undergraduate Curriculum at Bethune-Cookman University, Daytona Beach, Florida

The National Science Foundation award titled “Targeted Infusion Project: Developing Quantitative Expertise in the Undergraduate Biology Curriculum (QEUBiC)” from August 2014 to July 2018 was designed in response to the need to developing biology graduates who can address societal challenges using bio-based solutions. 

The four-year 124 semester hours biology undergraduate curriculum at Bethune-Cookman University became effective in August 2018.

The design of the curriculum promotes comprehensive student academic success. Students are supported to become expert learners and gain professional expertise in biology. In addition to the General Education courses, the new biology curriculum at Bethune-Cookman University includes:

(1) Three-course series on fundamental principles of biology;
(2) Four-course series of seminar courses to shape career intentions;
(3) Second-year courses for entry into diverse sub-disciplines of biology;
(4) Courses for biological research methods, internship in biology and biological research experiences; and
(5) Third- and fourth- year courses for developing deep expertise in sub-disciplines of biology.

The project facilitated the development and introduction of three new courses designed to equip students with computational and quantitative skills. The courses are Advanced Computing Resources in Biology, Biomolecular Technologies, and Computational Genomics.

The curriculum is available at https://catalog.cookman.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=33&poid=3298
