Program Description

New York Chiropractic College offers a 123-semester-credit-hour baccalaureate degree program: the Bachelor of Professional Studies (B.P.S.) with a major in Life Sciences. Only students who have been admitted into the D.C. or M.S.A./M.S.A.O.M. programs at NYCC are eligible to participate in the B.P.S. program.

For those students who lack a baccalaureate degree upon matriculation into NYCC's D.C. or M.S.A./M.S.A.O.M. programs, the B.P.S. program is designed to serve two purposes: (1) enable professional program graduates to be eligible for licensure in those jurisdictions where a baccalaureate degree is required in addition to graduation from a professionally accredited program; and (2) allow NYCC graduates to be eligible for enrollment in graduate programs that require an undergraduate degree in a lifescience-oriented field.

D.C. Student Requirements

  • Completion of 90 undergraduate credits, including 33 credits in liberal arts and science courses
  • Completion of 30 credits taken at NYCC from among the following D.C. curriculum courses: Cell and Tissue Biology, Gross Anatomy I, Gross Anatomy II, Gross Anatomy III, Neuroscience I, Neuroscience II, Principles of Biochemistry, Biochemistry of Nutrition/Metabolism, Systems Physiology, Clinical Microbiology, Environmental Health, Basic Human Nutrition I, Basic Human Nutrition II
  • Completion of the three-credit capstone course, Integrative Healthcare (BPS 4000)
