  On February 20th, “Genetics (English)” of College of Life Science began its second course on the MOOC platform of China University. This is currently the only online English course in genetics across the country, and NWAFU’s first full English course selected for the MOOC platform of China University.

  “Genetics” is the core basic course for life science related majors. The English-only learning method helps students cross the threshold of professional English learning and better grasp the latest progress in genetics. Since the first course began in October 2019, more than 2000 students have enrolled in the course, coming from Northwest A&F University, Shandong University, Suzhou University, Hunan University and other double first-class universities. The course has received wide acclaim from the students and peers.
