There are so many degrees to choose from at Texas State, some of which you may never have heard of before. If you’d like to learn more about what a clinical laboratory scientist does, watch this cool video.
Q. Your degree in Clinical Laboratory Science isn’t your first. What other degrees have you earned?
Lindsey has earned three degrees at Texas State. “It’s all about motivation. You have to be motivated; if you’re not interested, you won’t do it.”
A. I got my bachelor’s in microbiology and then I immediately started the master’s program in biology (specifically micro-research). Immediately after that, I started the Clinical Lab Science (CLS) program. I’ve earned all of my degrees from Texas State.
