New Health & Life Sciences at Middlesex

Middlesex Community College is excited to be a participant in a federally-funded program to expand Health & Life Science learning and training opportunities for its students. The goal is to provide individuals with affordable options for gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to find employment in growing fields. We offer a broad variety of programs for students who are interested in patient care, computer science, natural resource management and more.  Some can be completed within a year of study; others prepare students for pursuit of degrees at four-year colleges.

About the Health & Life Sciences Career Initiative

This HL-SCI initiative will provide targeted certifications, industry-recognized credentials, and Associate degrees to prepare veterans, Trade Adjusted Assistance (TAA) impacted, dislocated, and other un/under-employed workers statewide for careers in health and life sciences through implementation of three evidence-based program strategies: 1) Curriculum innovation will create at least 15 new certificate/degree programs and align for-credit certificate programs with industry-recognized credentials, deliver math and science booster modules online and as “apps”, and deliver online/hybrid learning courses to 2,400 students to accelerate course completion; 2) Prior Learning Assessments (PLAs) will enable 675 students to earn 10,000+ college credits for work skills and on-the-job learning, improving achievement rates and reducing time to completion; and 3) Recruitment and Placement Services will help HL-SCI participants find (or start on pathways towards) high-paying jobs in growing industries.
