At these sessions you will learn about Biology and Management of Zoo Animals coursework, program requirements, selection criteria, application procedures, deadlines, as well as strategies to improve your admission prospects. The sessions last approximately one hour, including a 30 minute Q&A session. They are not required in order to apply to PCC’s BAMZA program.

All sessions are held at PCC's Rock Creek Campus, where you will have the opportunity to see some of our facilities and the farm!

For frequently asked BAMZA questions and general PCC questions, see our FAQ page or ask the Panther.
