Clinical Laboratory Science, B.S. major

Note: After completing the clinical year courses, students will receive a double major: Biology, B.S., and Clinical Laboratory Science, B.S.

In this option, the student completes a Biology, B.S., major at Bemidji State University, and then applies for admission to the clinical year program through the University of North Dakota or other affiliated institution (a 2.80 GPA overall and in science courses is one requirement for entrance into the clinical year program).  

This option may be of interest to students considering a pre-professional program such as pre-medicine, pre-veterinary medicine, or other pre-professional area. Students who fail to gain admission to the professional school of their choice will have the option of pursuing a health-related career in Clinical Laboratory Science.
