About the program
QBIC (Quantifying Biology in the Classroom) is a program for students interested in a more in-depth approach to the biological sciences. Our integrative four-year curriculum emphasizes the study of living systems, while providing students the tools to critically evaluate biological concepts.
Our graduates are well prepared to excel in any biological science professional or graduate program.Learn more

The Teaching Pentagon illustrates the integration of QBIC classes: General Biology lecture and lab, journal club, peer-led team learning (PLTL), and statistics.
Scholars learn biological concepts in lecture, design experiments to test the concept in lab, discuss cutting-edge science related to the concept in journal club, reinforce the concept in Peer-led team learning, and then analyze the data collected.Learn more
