The Department of Science offers a Science program leading to an Associate in Science(A.S.) degree. This program is appropriate for students whose education goals require a Bachelor’s Degree in a basic or applied science, or students who desire a background in science for a health profession education.
- You can pursue an A.S. degree to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in a basic or applied science. You can later specialize in a specific area including: Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics, Biological/Biochemical Engineering, Computer Science, Occupational Health and Safety, Public Health, Information Technology, Microbiology, Nanotechnology Engineering, Nutrition and Food, Social Science, Veterinary Technology, among many others.
The U.S. Department of Commerce reported in 2011 that growth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) jobs has been three times faster than in other fields. This is not surprising taking into consideration that the STEM field is a fundamental source of innovation in every nation.
In addition to all Science courses offered at BMCC, our institution gives students the opportunity to participate in research programs under the guidance of professors with expertise in different fields.
BMCC has articulation agreements with science programs at several four year colleges to allow you to seamlessly continue your education there.
