Welcome from the Department Chairperson

Welcome to the Department of Undergraduate Studies at Bay Shore!

Selecting an undergraduate college is a complex, personal process. It can be challenging, even daunting to find a school that matches your needs, your values, and your standards as a potential student. Course availability, class size, campus life, and (of course) affordability will all factor into your decision. Your final choice will reflect both your educational style and your goals for a future career.

Touro College’s School of Health Sciences at Bay Shore offers baccalaureate degree programs in Biology, Psychology, and Health Sciences. Our curriculum imparts both a liberal arts foundation and a broad base of scientific knowledge. To this end, each of our majors prepares students for graduate study in our nationally accredited professional programs, for which qualified students can earn preferred admissions status.

Touro students enjoy the benefits of attending a small, private college, including small classes, individual advisement, and opportunities for professional collaboration with faculty members. Our campus is conveniently located in the heart of Long Island’s South Shore, within walking distance of the Long Island Railroad and Main Street with its shops, restaurants, and sporting activities. Best of all, our tuition is the lowest of any private, four-year college on Long Island, making Touro a uniquely affordable college choice.

If you are interested in studying science or psychology in a private and personal college setting for an affordable price, then I invite you to learn more about our programs. Peruse our website, attend one of our information sessions, or call to schedule an appointment to receive individual advisement on your application.

Your college search is an exciting step in your academic and professional career, and we look forward to supporting you. Thank you for considering our program, and good luck!
