Why the Learning Academy?

The Health Professions Community allows you to connect easily with students who are interested in healthcare careers. As you develop a strong professional relationship with your academic advisor through one-on-one meetings and weekly success seminars, you will design your path to academic success in a health profession, using proven strategies and campus resources. From entrance into BMCC to graduation and transfer, the Health Professions Community is your home on BMCC’s campus.

Learning Communities

The Learning Academy is excited to offer students several exciting learning community options. These are integrated learning experiences that pair academic courses and seminars, helping you reach your potential and excel as a student. Students enrolled in learning communities will enjoy the support of both faculty and advisors.

Success Seminars

Academic success means more than just showing up for class, and Learning Academy success seminars, taught by advisors, are an excellent way to develop important academic, professional and college success skills with other students. Success seminars offer students academic empowerment, strategies for connecting to faculty, the ability to improve time management and study habits, familiarity with campus resources, career exploration, professional skill development and step-by-step plans for transfer.

Career Exploration and Transfer

Our Careers in Context Initiative offers students the opportunity to visit workplaces and make connections in their fields. Through guest speakers and site visits, students will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of health professions to solidify their career pathway.

Members of the Health Professions Community who want to transfer will receive intensive transfer advisement, trips to senior colleges across NYC and transfer application assistance. Our students have been accepted as transfer students at Hunter College, City College, Stony Brook University, SUNY Fashion Institute of Technology, Baruch College, NYU and Columbia University.
