Our students are accepted at local professional schools such as Downstate and Long Island University as well as schools around the country. As a result of several federally-funded grants, students have the opportunity to complete their Associates in Science degree (A.S.) and then transfer to a senior college to pursue careers in Biomedical Research, Health and Nutrition Sciences, or Education (teaching science in the NYC public school system).
Further information about these programs may be found under "Special Programs."
Kingsborough's Nursing Department utilizes our anatomy and physiology, and microbiology courses to prepare students for training toward the R.N. with an Associates in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree. Some students take our pre-nursing courses for transfer to 4-year (B.S.N.) Nursing degree programs at The College of Staten Island, Hunter College, Downstate Medical Center, and other institutions having professional nursing programs.
Our department offers a 2-year Physical Therapist Assistant program leading to an A.A.S. Degree.
The traditional biology major can utilize the A.S. Degree awarded from Kingsborough to transfer to 4-year colleges to pursue the Bachelor of Science degree. This degree may be utilized for science teaching at the junior or senior high school level (with an education minor), to pursue Health and Nutrition Sciences at Brooklyn College, and to prepare for graduate work leading to careers in basic research in the biological sciences.
