It's December 27, and scientist Louis Pasteur was born on this date in 1822. Every time you drink a glass of milk, you can do so safely because of a process invented by Pasteur. That process is known as pasteurization, but it was far from his only contribution to science. He also developed the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax and is considered one of the founders of microbiology. Pasteur was also a professor of chemistry and physics, so he'd certainly be qualified to teach any of our science courses. That's because, like Pasteur, many of our instructors have advanced degrees in the subjects they teach. Indeed, all of our instructors have at least 24 hours of college credit in the subjects they teach, and all of them call students by name and write personalized comments on every exam they grade. It's another example of our caring student service and one reason why more than three million students worldwide have chosen to earn their accredited high school diplomas with our help.
