Clinical Laboratory Science 4+1 Track (B.S.)

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will demonstrate knowledge of discipline- specific content related to macro- principles describing the 3 domains of biology and the molecular nature of life.
  2. Students will use critical thinking by demonstrating the ability to recognize the components of a problem, formulate a strategy to solve the problem, apply comprehensive scientific knowledge to execute a solution and then evaluate the effectiveness of the solution.
  3. Students will demonstrate communication skills reflective of professional standards consistent biology-related associations (i.e.FASEB).
  4. Students will demonstrate discipline- specific core laboratory and calculation- based skills related to the characterization and classification of life forms, their components and habitats and in the molecular analysis of living species.
  5. Students will demonstrate readiness for post-baccalaureate entry into a workforce or acceptance into graduate or professional programs in Biology and/or health professions.
  6. Students will demonstrate global perspective in their understanding of how biological factors affect economics, health, technology and the environment.
