You will enjoy many experiential learning opportunities, including hands-on lab courses, internships, and research. Every Health Science major conducts a science research project under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Many students present this work at scientific conferences: a significant competitive advantage both for graduate programs and employment.
Upper-level coursework is selected based on the individual requirements of your intended post-NEC academic and career directions and includes classes such as anatomy and physiology, microbiology, chemistry, kinesiology, math, and physics.
Thanks to an agreement between NEC and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science, students who take specific required courses and maintain at least a certain GPA will be assured an interview for an accelerated nursing program or graduate programs for physician assistant or pharmacy.
