Academic Programs of Study
A “3+1” dual degree program, students earn a B.S. in Biology from Marywood and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from NY Chiropractic College. It allows students to save a year of time in achieving their D.C. degree. Students complete credits in science and liberal arts requirements in their three years at Marywood; the fourth year is spent at New York Chiropractic College. After the first year of chiropractic study, the students earn a B.S. from Marywood in Biology. After an additional two years and eight months at NYCC, they earn a D.C. degree.
