FAMU and Bisk Announce Partnership to Deliver Online Master’s Programs

Bisk, a global leader in online education, announced its partnership with Florida A&M University (FAMU) to deliver online master’s programs.

STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — careers are in high demand with steady growth over the last 10 years, faster than any other occupation. With STEM jobs expected to top non-STEM jobs in the coming years, Bisk and FAMU will offer flexible online learning options for broader accessibility to FAMU’s STEM Degree Program.

“STEM skills are vital for individuals to have success at all levels of employment,” said Jennifer King, Ph.D, executive director of academic success for Bisk. “With minorities being underrepresented within the STEM fields, this is a terrific opportunity to support a premier HBCU’s STEM programs. Providing upgraded flexibility and mobility for students will allow them to complete the programs online, get matriculated and move into the workforce.”

Bisk’s Learning Design Team will convert FAMU’s Master of Science degree programs in biology, chemistry, and physics to fully online learning from the College of Science and Technology. The Bachelor of Architecture 5th Year Commuter Program and Master of Science in Facilities Management, both from the School of Architecture and Engineering Technology, will also be converted to fully online.

“We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity it provides to expand the University’s digital footprint,” said Genyne Boston, Ph.D., FAMU associate provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs. “Our collaborative efforts with Bisk will expand online course offerings and enrich the student learning experience.”

FAMU offers high-quality, affordable education and was ranked No. 104 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 Best Colleges Rankings. This retains FAMU as the highest-ranking public historically black college and university (HBCU) for the third consecutive year. The university also received funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) this past spring, designating $36 million in grants to students for financial aid relief.
