Applying to NJCSTM
The NJ Center for Science, Technology & Mathematics (NJCSTM) is the home for highly qualified Kean University students who wish to pursue rigorous science and mathematics majors within the context of interdisciplinary study.
NJCSTM offers a five year, combined bachelor/master degree with five options, three for the preparation of secondary science and mathematics teachers (biology, chemistry, and mathematics) and two leading to research careers in science and technology (molecular biology/biotechnology and computational applied mathematics). There is an articulation agreement with Raritan Valley Community College whereby candidates for the associates degree in biotechnology can apply to transition with junior status into the NJCSTM five year bachelor/master degree scientist-research track.
NJCSTM also offers a four year bachelor’s degree program option in biomedicine for students intending to go onto to graduate training in medicine, physical therapy or related fields. Within this biomedicine option is a 4+4 dual admission linkage program with Drexel University College of Medicine and St. Peter’s University Hospital.
