Biological Science Emphasis:
The Biological Science emphasis is designed to prepare students for transfer into the Biological Science Major with a B.S degree.
Students may complete an AA/PRH with a biology emphasis in two years. If they then transfer to the BS.BIO program at Chalon, the degree will take four additional years (six years altogether). AA students who qualify may choose to transfer after their first year in the program and fulfill the BS.BIO degree in five years. Students who transfer prior to receiving their AA degree cannot request it retroactively.
The Nursing emphasis is designed to prepare students for transfer into the Bachelor of Science degree for the Nursing (BSN) program on the Chalon Campus. Admission to MSMC does not constitute admission to the Nursing program.
