Online Biochemistry at UC San Diego Extension


Recommended Posts

Has anyone taken Introduction to Biochemistry online through UC San Diego Extension? I am contemplating taking this course but there is no access to the syllabus before enrollment, so I have no idea what the course entails. I also need to submit documentation of the course to my job prior to enrollment for partial tuition reimbursement. I really do appreciate it if anyone can help!

Does anyone recommend a different online Biochemistry course? I have taken Organic Chemistry and Medical Terminology through UNE and I would prefer to avoid taking Biochemistry there as well.

Bumping this thread because I'd love to know anyone's experience with UCSD's biochemistry course. I'm contemplating between UCSD or UNE.

 

Thanks !

I took Doane University's online Biochem course and it was phenomenal. It was challenging, but the professor has designed the course to ensure that you are learning the material. I truly loved this course. I have heard horror stories from UCSD requiring 20 plus hours a week of work with little

Feedback on assignments. Professor Beio at Doane provides great feedback and has a variety of assignments so you always have a chance to bring up a rough grade. I have all of my assignments and syllabus if you wanna look over it.

I am interested too. Can I see the syllabus too? Is it okay if this is an online course?

Would you be kind enough to send me a link to taking the course. I really need this to be able to apply this cycle but do not have any near by college to take it in person. I wanted more information about the biochemistry course and details of the class so i can make sure the program i am applying to will accept it. IF you can message me that will be great thanks.

Hi, I took the course earlier this year. It is classified as an "introductory" course, so beware of that. There is an exam each week of the course, and they are not proctored. There are no midterm or final exams. There is one paper due at the end of the course. I don't have the syllabus on hand, but it was worth taking since it only took about two months to finish.

How difficult would you say the course is? Would it be possible to take this and genetics at the same time?

      Hi, everyone. I'm a non-traditional student, wrapping up my associate's degree in psychology from a small state school (not a community college) in Georgia. This college only offers 3 bachelor degrees, which is why I would finish elsewhere. I was a student at Arizona State Online, but transferred to take my prerequisites and labs in person. All my science prerequisites with in-person labs for PA programs will be done prior to transferring to the next college for my bachelor's degree. Now that I'm almost done, I was originally planning to then finish my degree through ASU, but am now considering finishing it at my local university for various reasons. Here's the two options I have:
       
      Option A: Finish my bachelor's degree in psychology at my local university.
      PROS: Graduate with less than $10k in debt. Get hands-on experience in research. More than likely get a stronger letter of recommendation.
      CONS: It would take longer to finish. I would barely get by, working part-time and living paycheck to paycheck. I would have to devote more time to in-person classes, which would take away from my income and time to do other things. Less volunteer hours. ALL clinical hours will be in private EMS, so my hands-on experience and skills won't be utilized as much, as it's 95% mostly transporting stable patients.
      Option B: Finish my bachelor's degree in psychology at Arizona State University (online).
      PROS: Accelerated program and can finish in 1.5 years instead of 2.5 years. Work in 911 EMS, which means better hands-on experience and utilizing my skills more - I think this will also make me a better provider in the future. More time to work, which means more income. More time not in a physical class, which means more time to volunteer, which is less stressful since I also have more money in general. Still get to go graduate in person.
      CONS: Graduate with around $30k in debt. Weaker letters of recommendation. Little research opportunity. Obvious I finished my degree online because the college is 20+ hours away.
       
      Although it would cost more to finish at ASU, I could become a PA faster, which means it would actually be better financially IF I were to get into both at the same cycle.

      Hello all!
      I am sure there are already several similar topics already on here, but I am struggling to find them. I am wondering if anyone has compiled a list of schools that do or do not accept online anatomy and physiology courses if taken during quarantine. I have checked the websites of several schools that make no statements on how their prereq requirements have been altered in response to the pandemic. If anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful.
      Thank you!!

      Hi, 
       
      Just signed up for this forum. 
       
      I am currently a senior in my undergrad, I finish in the Summer 2021. My current cumulative gpa is 3.09 which is very low and for my science courses these are the grades I have made: 
      General Chem 1 & 2: B
      Biology 1 : B
      Biology 2: C 
      Orgo 1: C 
      Orgo 2: F(first time), C (2nd time)  
      Physics 1 & 2: A
      Genetics: B-
      Microbiology: D, I am going to retake. 
       
      I am taking Biochemistry 1 this spring 2021 and other upper-division biology courses where I hope to make As in. 
       
      I would like advice on what I should do to increase my gpa.  Should I enroll in a post-bacc program while getting PCE (through volunteering/shadowing or getting a job at an urgent care or hospital) or should retake the classes I received a C or below in, then start prepping to take the GRE and going through the application process. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

      Hey, everybody! Fairly new here. I’ve been scrolling through other threads on this site regarding recommended online schools for prerequisite courses. A few of the threads are extremely helpful but several years old, so I wanted to start a more contemporary thread in case online school qualities have changed or there are any new ones. 
      I’m looking to take biochemistry and anatomy online. Ideally a low price would be great, but a self-paced online course is most important to me considering my current career and associated time restrictions. 
      I’ve been looking heavily at UNE for both courses but have heard mixed reviews. Any recommendations or suggestions based on your experiences, for UNE or others?
      Thank you so much!

      Hello all!
      Has anyone taken Pharmacology online at Doane? I'm exploring my options, but leaning more towards Doane University at the moment. ANY type of feedback regarding the course or other schools ya'll may have completed it at would be greatly APPRECIATED! 
      Thank you so much in advance
