Mixing Online and On-Campus Classes

by Apr 8, 2016

Home » Biomedical Science » Mixing Online and On-Campus Classes

One of the biggest choices you’ll make is whether to complete your biomedical science degree in an online program or on a traditional campus.  There are many advantages to a traditional campus, especially in the biomedical sciences, not the least of which is access to laboratory classes.


However, online classes can give you flexibility in balancing your degree with real life demands. There may be seasons where your day job is more demanding, or when family responsibilities require more of your evening hours. The scheduling flexibility of online classes gives you more options during these times.

The good news is that National University offers you a combination of both on-campus and online courses!  You can choose to complete your entire degree completion program on our university campus, or choose from nine online classes to integrate some flexibility and convenience into your schedule.

Here what’s on the NUHS online menu:

  • Research Methods and Statistics
  • General Microbiology
  • Immunology
  • Introduction to Epidemiology
  • Introduction to Public Health
  • Pathophysiology
  • Basic Nutrition
  • Advanced Human Nutrition
  • Introduction to Botanicals and Herbs

The best way to explore if a bachelor of biomedical science degree from National University is right for you is to visit campus.  There you can discuss your scheduling needs with an advisor, and see how on-campus and online learning can work together. 

If you visit campus during the NUHS Summer Soak Up event from May through August, you’ll earn $500 in tuition credit toward your first trimester in the B.S. program. Call 1-800-826-6285 to schedule your visit!
