What specialization is needed?

The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in biology with a specialization in medical laboratory science.

This degree program prepares students to take the national certification examination to practice as medical laboratory scientists (otherwise known as medical technologists) in healthcare, industry, business, and research. The program also prepares students to become certified in a specialty area of molecular pathology as well as gain skills for forensic laboratory investigation and basic research.

Why is science lab mandatory?

It is not essential to have a degree to become a scientific laboratory technician as many posts ask for GCSEs or science-related A-levels (or equivalent).

However, many technicians do have degrees and so holding a higher qualification in a relevant subject can be useful for securing a job, particularly if competition is high.
