UF Offers 4-Yr. Health Degrees

The University of Florida has announced that it is rolling out four-year undergraduate degrees wholly online, including several that are health-related. By state law, tuition will be capped at 75 percent of the on-campus rate, and students also will be spared a number of fees, as well as room and board.

In January, UF will offer five online four-year degrees, including Health Education & Behavior and Environmental Management.  Biology and psychology degree offerings online will be added in June, UF says.

According to UF's announcement, only a handful of state universities offer the full four-year format online. Many UF courses have been given online, the announcement says, but primarily for graduate students or two-year transfers.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
