Miami, August 2, 2011 - This fall term, Miami Dade College (MDC) will launch its new baccalaureate degree program in biological sciences, which will allow graduates to tap into the burgeoning demand for biological scientists with four-year degrees, projected to increase by 21 percent during the next decade. Students can choose from three concentrations: biotechnology, biopharmaceutical sciences, or science education. The program is housed at North Campus, but some classes will be available at other campuses.
MDC’s other bachelor’s degree options include electronics engineering; film, television & digital production; nursing; several education tracks; physician assistant studies; public safety; and supervision and management.
For those with a passion for food, MDC’s Miami Culinary Institute offers a curriculum steeped in environmental sustainability and culinary innovation. The institute’s Associate in Science program provides real-world knowledge, understanding and technique through engaging, hands-on classes in a brand new, state-of-the-art building located at the Wolfson Campus.
In addition, MDC’s School of Community Education will introduce itsGaming Industry Training Program in late fall. The program will offer certification in three areas: generic skills training, industry specific training and slot machine technician. More details to be announced soon.
