Dual Degree Programs
St. Thomas Aquinas College is an articulating undergraduate institution in a dual degree program in physical therapy with New York Medical College (NYMC). A limited number of students who have completed at least 90 appropriate credits toward the biology major, have satisfied other NYMC admissions criteria and have received a recommendation by St. Thomas may be admitted to the graduate program in physical therapy at NYMC. However, NYMC now prefers that applicants to their D.P.T. program have a bachelor’s degree. Students who enroll at NMYC after 3 years at STAC receive a B.S. degree in Biology from STAC after the successful completion of two years of the the D.P.T. program. Students may obtain full information on this highly competitive dual degree program by contacting the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.
St. Thomas Aquinas College has established a program with New York Chiropractic College leading to completion of both a B.S. degree in biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Students follow the STAC biology curriculum for the first three years. In the fourth year, students transfer to NYCC where they will complete the STAC requirements for the biology degree while concurrently completing the first year of the chiropractic program. After successful completion of the required number of transfer credits, students may apply for the bachelor’s degree from St. Thomas Aquinas College. For further information, students are advised to contact the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.
St. Thomas Aquinas College has entered into an articulation agreement with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM). Students who have completed at least 90 credits with a grade point average of 3.00 including required courses in biology, chemistry and physics may be admitted to the first year class at NYCPM. During the first year at NYCPM, students earn 30 credits in transferable courses for purposes of the conferring of a bachelor’s degree by STAC. For further information students should contact the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences
St. Thomas Aquinas College has established a program with Polytechnic University leading to the completion of both a B.S. degree in biology and a M.S. degree in biomedical engineering. Students who have completed at least 98 appropriate credits toward the biology major, have satisfied the Polytechnic University admissions criteria, and have received a recommendation from St. Thomas may be admitted to the graduate program in biomedical engineering at Polytechnic University. Students who successfully complete the two year program at Polytechnic University will receive their M.S. from them and their B.S. degree in Biology from STAC.

St. Thomas Aquinas College offers a five-year dual degree engineering program jointly with the George Washington University (Washington, D.C.) or Manhattan College (New York City). Engineering students spend their first three years at STAC, where they acquire a background in mathematics, physics, chemistry, humanities, and social sciences. Students who have been recommended by the faculty of the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics are accepted for their final two years of engineering studies at either the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the George Washington University or the School of Engineering at Manhattan College. Upon completion of their fifth year, they are granted a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering by either GWU or Manhattan and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics by St. Thomas.
