Department of Biological Sciences
The Biology Department offers an A.S. Biology program with concentrations in marine biology, biotechnology, and secondary education. We also offer a transfer option program in Health and Nutrition Sciences with Brooklyn College. Our department offers Allied Health transfer-options specifically in Physician Assistant, Occupational Therapy, and Pharmacy that provide the prerequisite courses in liberal arts and sciences to facilitate transfer to professional schools offering advanced degrees in those disciplines.
We also prepare students for careers in Physical Therapy with transfer to 4-year colleges for the B.S. degree. The Bachelor's degree is now the requirement for entry into PT professional schools. The links below provide detailed information about these programs. The department also offers a 2-year A.A.S. Physical Therapist Assistant Program which allows the student to enter the workforce upon successful completion of the program and State Board Examinations.
