Study STEM at RCC

It’s no secret that Boston is a hub for STEM industries. It’s also become proven fact that STEM jobs are some of the most lucrative: according to a recent study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “the national average wage for all STEM occupations was $87,570, nearly double the national average wage for non-STEM occupations ($45,700).”

At RCC, we take pride in preparing the next generation of leaders in STEM industries through rigorous and relevant coursework in a variety of programs, including biotechnology, engineering, biological sciences, and mathematics, to name a few.

Although RCC is offering all summer courses online, you can still enroll in science courses with lab components and earn fully-transferable credits.  Labs are completed either through interactive online sessions or through lab kits.  You can complete all coursework without leaving home or needing to come to campus—at RCC, your safety is a top priority.

The following science courses are being offered online, beginning on May 26, 2020:

SCI 103: Biology I (10 weeks)

SCI 106: Nutrition (10 weeks)

SCI 123: Principles of Chemistry I (10 weeks)

SCI 124: Principles of Chemistry II (10 weeks)

SCI 201: Anatomy and Physiology I (10 weeks)

SCI 202: Anatomy and Physiology II (10 weeks)
