What's the deal with Clinical Laboratory Science as a major?

Does anyone here know much about majoring in Clinical Laboratory Science? How are the classes, workload, and what kind of job opportunities can come out of it? I'm trying to figure out if it's the right major for me. Would love to hear from any current students or grads!

Hey there! Typically in the Clinical Laboratory Science major, classes are pretty rigorous with a strong focus on biology, chemistry, and math. Students also tend to spend quite a bit of time in the lab, which means the workload can be heavy, but it's manageable with good organization.

As for job opportunities, they look pretty solid for students in this major. Graduates can work in hospital labs, research institutions, or in public health. There are fairly diverse career paths, including becoming a medical lab technician or eventually going for further certification to become a lab manager.

It seems as long as you have a strong interest in the sciences and are comfortable working behind the scenes in healthcare, Clinical Laboratory Science could be a very rewarding major!
