Rockland Community College provides several excellent opportunities for students to explore and discover science through research and a study abroad experience.

Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program

Partnering with Purchase College, this program offers a six week paid science research experience for underrepresented minorities, first-generation college students and students who are financially challenged.
