Natural and Physical Sciences

Chaired by Eduardo A. Zappi, Ph.D.

The Department of Natural and Physical Sciences offers a B.A. in Biology  , B.S. in Medical Technology and B.S. in Health Science. A pre-medical post-baccalaureate certificate program is also available to college graduate who wish to complete requirements for admissions to medical and other health professional schools. The department  also offers Minors in Biology and Chemistry.

B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science

Caldwell College and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, jointly offers a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) with concentrations in cytotechnology, and medical technology. Typically, students complete the requirements for a medical technology major at Caldwell College and then enter the 15-month professional program at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, to complete the desired concentration. Students must meet the academic requirements of both institutions to be awarded the B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science.
