Why Study Clinical Laboratory Sciences?

The Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences offers an upper-division program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. Stony Brook freshmen are given the option to declare clinical laboratory sciences as a lower-division major. A double major in clinical laboratory sciences and biology is available. A part time online-hybrid program is also available. Clinical laboratory scientists utilize a wide variety of sophisticated equipment and skills to perform tests that analyze specimens to produce data for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease. Many of the same tests are used for organ transplants, therapeutic drug monitoring, crime investigation, genetic studies, and research. The program now offers two specializations (Forensic Medical Diagnostics, and Clinical Cytogenetics) within its traditional clinical laboratory curriculum.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Forensic Medical Diagnostics
  • Clinical Cytogenetics
  • Management Concepts for Health Professionals
  • Physiology

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • Clinical Laboratory Scientist
  • Biomarker Data Specialist
  • Lab Assistant
  • Certifying Scientist, Toxicology
