Dual Degree Programs

We have developed articulation agreements with several colleges and universities.   Through these programs in Healthcare and STEM areas, including engineering, students can begin their undergraduate program at St. Thomas Aquinas College and complete a masters or dual bachelor degree within one of the programs outlined below.

Healthcare Dual Degree Programs

Access to Top Local Graduate Programs and Hospitals

Your path to success starts here with our excellent science programs and continues through our long-standing agreements with several local graduate schools and hospitals. Upon completion of your education, you will earn two degrees that can lead to a variety of healthcare careers.  As early as your freshman year, you will begin to work with advisors to chart a plan; by junior year, you will be evaluated and recommended by the faculty’s Pre-Health/Pre-Graduate Committee.  Qualified students will receive one-on-one guidance in preparing a curriculum, filling out application materials, practicing interviews and, best of all, early – and in some cases guaranteed – admission to these very competitive graduate programs.  You can obtain more information on all of these highly rewarding programs by contacting the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.

Physical Therapy 
St. Thomas Aquinas College will prepare you for a career as a Physical Therapist through our agreement with the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at New York Medical College. Upon completion of your Biology degree at the College, and with the recommendation of our Pre-Health/Pre-Graduate Committee, you may receive priority admission and seamlessly begin your graduate study. 

For Program Requirements, contact Dr. Steve Burns at 398-4176.

Chiropractic Medicine
If you’re interested in becoming a Chiropractor, St. Thomas Aquinas College has a coordinated program with New York Chiropractic College leading to both a B.S. in Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree in five years!  You will work with our accomplished science faculty for the first three years, and in your fourth year transfer to NYCC to begin your first year of graduate Chiropractic study. 

Podiatric Medicine 
Podiatry is a thriving healthcare career choice – and because of our relationship with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, you could be recommended for admission to spend your Senior Year beginning graduate work at NYCPM – on your way to becoming a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine. 

STEM Dual Degree Programs

Engineering – Civil, Electrical and Computer, or Mechanical 
St. Thomas Aquinas College offers a five-year dual-degree engineering program jointly with Manhattan College in Bronxville, NY.  As a pre-engineering student, you will spend your first three years with us, acquiring the Math and Science background that will prepare you for the application process into one of Manhattan’s renowned Engineering programs.  With the completion of your fifth year, you will have earned both a B.S. in Math from us and a B.S. in Engineering from Manhattan in whatever specialization you choose.
