The biology courses are designed to contribute to the student’s general understanding of the nature and interrelationships of living things. Courses for majors carry the additional aspects of providing a preparation for graduate and professional studies.
Affiliated Program of St. Joseph’s College – The New York College of Podiatric Medicine
St. Joseph’s offers an accelerated biomedical program in cooperation with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. A student accepted into the program will spend three years at St. Joseph’s College and four years at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. On completion of the St. Joseph’s College component and one year at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, the student will be awarded the B.S. degree in Biology by St. Joseph’s College. On completion of the program at New York College of Podiatric Medicine, the D.P.M. (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) will be awarded.
Students in the program will be expected to maintain an honors grade point average while they are at St. Joseph’s College and to score satisfactorily in the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) which is taken in April of the second year.
For details of this program, students should consult the Chairperson of the Biology Department.
