Meet Ashley Unglert
ashleyAshley Unglert stood in the hall outside her first Honors class at Middlesex County College and wondered what she had gotten into. The class was "Biology for Non-Majors." What was she doing here? She didn't even like biology. "It was intimidating," she said. "All these students looked so smart. I was worried. But then Professor Donna-Marie Gardener comes bursting through the door and shouts 'biology is fun!' And you know what? It was."
Ms. Unglert grew up in Old Bridge and went to East Brunswick Vo-Tech High School. She graduated from Middlesex County College in May of 2010 with a degree in Liberal Arts/History and is now at Columbia University. So far, she is a straight A student there.

"If you told me five years ago that I would have been attending Columbia University, I would have laughed," Ms. Unglert said. She credits the Honors program with giving her the confidence to succeed.

"If it wasn't for Professor Gardener, I never would have applied to Columbia," she said. "She taught me how to take a class with a lot of content and manage it - divide it into managable chunks and handle each one."

Ms. Unglert also took a mythology class with Professor Spano and loved it as well. "He taught me to think outside the box, which is extremely helpful at Columbia," she said.

She also said the program allows students to develop a personal relationship with their professors. "Honors classes are very small - at most 15 students per class, so you really get to know your professors," she said. "The Honors Program is amazing. It changed my life."

Degree Program Showcase

Earn a Degree In These High Demand Jobs!



Students choose from one of three biology curricula: traditional biology major, pre-professional and biotechnology. These curricula parallel the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in biology.

The Biotechnology curriculum prepares the students for biotechnology/biosciences programs at four-year institutions and for a future career in biotechnology. The students in this program acquire knowledge in general biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, genetics, microbiology, cell biology and molecular biology. The students will acquire competence in laboratory techniques and instrumentation that are relevant to the biotechnology industry. This degree transfers seamlessly (without loss of credit) to the Biotechnology B.S. degree at Rutgers University and to other universities.


Nursing Program

This program prepares students for entry-level positions in nursing and for taking the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). It has been approved by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing, the New Jersey Council of Presidents, and Accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN).

The standard duration of this Associate Degree program is four semesters (two years). Many students elect to take the science and general education courses required in the program before entry into the program. However, the four nursing courses must be taken in sequence and still require four semesters before graduation. Each nursing course may require Monday through Friday attendance.


Dental Hygiene Program

Middlesex County College offers an Associate in Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene. The curriculum is rigorous and includes general education, science courses and dental hygiene courses. Students complete two years of academic study including clinical practice under the supervision of Middlesex County College faculty in the college’s Dental Hygiene clinic and external clinical practice sites. General education and science courses may be completed prior to admission to the program or concurrently with the dental hygiene program courses.

During the final semester of the program, students are eligible to take the Dental Hygiene National Board and the North East Regional Board Examinations. Upon graduation and successful completion of these board examinations, the graduate may apply for and take a state licensure examination.


Radiography Education

The Radiography Education Program includes general education and science courses. Extensive study in the field of radiography is designed to provide comprehensive, theoretical and practical knowledge and skills. Instruction takes place in well-equipped classrooms, small study group areas, and energized radiographic rooms with a fully operating digital and film processing.

Rapid growth in the medical field has created demand for individuals trained in this allied health profession. In addition to hospital work, graduates prepare for positions in private physician’s offices, clinics, x-ray manufacturing firms, film companies, and portable x-ray companies

Graduates of the program are eligible to take the AMERICAN REGISTRY EXAMINATION and upon successful passage, are eligible for a New Jersey State License.
