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.

Why should I pursue a degree in Science?
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.

How can BMCC help me to shape my future career in the STEM field?
In addition to all Science courses offered at BMMC, our institution gives students the opportunity to participate in research programs under the guidance of professors with expertise in different fields.
