Go to Medical Laboratory Sciences - BS
Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS): Clinical Science is a pre-professional major, preparing students for careers in laboratories devoted to promoting, maintaining and restoring human health. The MLS curriculum builds upon the basic science courses required to enter the program. Courses in the major fall into
the following categories:
1. fundamental lab skills
2. clinical subspecialties
3. advanced biomedical courses
4. pre-professional practice
Emphasis is placed on problem solving and development of laboratory strategies, in addition to theoretical knowledge and practical skills in each of the disciplines in the curriculum. The Clinical Science major is intended for, but not limited to, students pursuing careers in the diagnostic laboratory and is designed to meet the requirements for NY State licensure of clinical laboratory technologists.
The academic demands of MLS courses often require students to carry lighter credit loads than they are accustomed to. Part-time attendance and some evening classes are mechanisms for assisting students to complete the challenging curriculum.
