Whether you are interested in science, technology, engineering or math, there are many great reasons to take advantage of Stonehill’s Science Transfer Initiative. The program allows you to apply your community college credits to a four-year degree here, thereby enjoying the unique benefits of a Stonehill education: Working one-on-one with professors who know you by name; conducting a faculty-mentored research project; and participating in an exciting internship.
Stonehill can help you acquire the skills and knowledge you need for a rewarding career in the sciences and offer you opportunities for self-discovery that can lead to a successful and fulfilling life.
