QBIC: Quantifying Biology in the Classroom

QBIC (Quantifying Biology in the Classroom) is a selective 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. The Teaching Pentagon illustrates the integration of QBIC classes: Biology lecture and lab, journal club, peer-led team learning (PLTL), and statistics.

Scholars learn a biological concept 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 PLTL, and then take the data collected in lab to their sophomore statistics class for analysis. QBIC program graduates have the skills needed to move fluidly among conceptual, analytical, and quantitative approaches to solving biological problems.
