Why Study Science?
Courses in science provide students with a foundation for more specialized and advanced areas of study in a baccalaureate program. Courses for these degree areas are comprised of a variety of disciplines including, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, science and mathematics. Upon completing the program, students will be prepared for transfer to a four-year institution where they can further their education in areas such as education, ecology, physics, chemistry, engineering, scientific or technical writing, health professions, or related areas.
Students interested in science often pursue the following degree programs:
Associate of Arts (AA):
The AA degree is recommended for students whose transfer plans require math and/or science, but who will be working toward other majors.
Associate of Science (AS):
- Biology Track
- Chemistry Track
- Honors Track
The AS degree is recommended for students who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in science, engineering or mathematics.
Meet our faculty
Many of our science faculty have done field-based and lab-based research and are able to bring these unique experiences to our students. Our distinguished faculty of over 100 full-time and 400 part-time members includes numerous Fulbright Scholars, SUNY Chancellor’s Award winners and published authors. Average class size of 22 allows faculty members to work one-on-one with students.
