The Biology and Chemistry programs at CCM each reflect these expanding areas of sciences and their related technologies. Students planning to transfer to baccalaureate programs or professional schools take courses that either parallel those required in the first two years of most baccalaureate programs or those required for entry into the most popular professional programs. Because of the complexity of career options and the diversity in requirements of baccalaureate and professional schools, students are required to work closely with their academic advisors.
Biology and Chemistry students at CCM work in modern, up-to-date labs, utilizing equipment used by industry today. Classes also are small, thus students receive individual attention.
Professors are committed to providing as quality education for all students and maintain close relationships with students throughout their educational experience. Many faculty members belong to professional organizations, including the American Chemical Society, the American Society of Microbiologists and the Metropolitan Association of College and University Biologists. Several faculty members have been nominated for or won the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development Excellence Award. Many are involved in research and have published several articles in industry journals.
In addition to advanced degrees in biology and chemistry and professional memberships, most also have had “real-world” industrial experience. The faculty maintains close relationships with local industry partners who support the college with equipment donations, internships and scholarships, and hire students after graduation.
