Online science labs give you direct practice of the scientific method. You get to experiment, test a hypothesis, and see the results first-hand.
Yes! Our four-credit online science courses offer a virtual laboratory, but our three-credit science courses do not. The course description will clearly describe if a virtual lab is required for each course of study. Labs let you practice science and test scientific theories hands-on.
You’ll see our four-credit laboratory courses listed as one course on your transcript. The course description will identify if there is a virtual lab.
