The Liberal Arts and Sciences: Math and Science degree program is both exciting and challenging. The required courses provide students with a strong math and science background while offering an introduction to other disciplines in the liberal arts as well. NCCC is distinguished by its nationally recognized faculty and modern teaching methodologies dedicated to the study of mathematics and science.
The program parallels the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program at many four-year institutions and has Dual Admission and Articulation Agreements with many. Students in this curriculum are highly successful in transferring to baccalaureate programs in mathematics, sciences, or engineering after completion of their studies at Niagara County Community College.
For students entering SUNY in fall 2015 or later, to earn a SUNY associate’s degree, one must earn 30 credits selected from SUNY approved general education courses. For details on the SUNY General Education policy, see the SUNY General Education website: https://system.suny.edu/academic-affairs/acaproplan/general-education/.

What I liked the most about the program were the professors, hands down. I am grateful I had the privilege of learning from them. They were always willing to help me achieve my goals. Niagara County Community College (NCCC) is affordable. The tuition rate allowed me to pay for my undergraduate degree out of pocket so I would not have to take out loans. NCCC is also very close to my home, so the commute is short. This program is challenging and requires significant effort if you want to get a high GPA. If you are dedicated and willing to put effort into your education, you will have an amazing support system that will help you get to where you want to be. In the fall of 2020, I began attending the University at Buffalo (UB) School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to earn my PharmD.
