The M.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences program at the Long Island University (LIU) is a 52- credit program requiring a 6-month full-time clinical placement. Students may begin as part-time but will require a full-time commitment in order to complete this graduate degree program.


Key facts

The Department of Biomedical Sciences integrates didactic courses with simulated laboratories taught at the University and clinical courses taught at each step of the program, university-based courses are reinforced in the professional laboratory setting. Students are exposed to state-of-the-art instrumentation and are educated by the highly qualified faculty to become entry-level laboratory professionals with comprehensive competency evaluated skills for entry into a laboratory career profession.

The goals of the M.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science program at the Long Island University (LIU) program are to exceed the NAACLS specified benchmarks for certification exam pass rate, graduation rate and employment rate. 

This program integrates a complex level of theoretical and technical instruction in simulated laboratories on campus. Following successful completion of the CLS didactic courses, students are selected for the practicum by competitively placement into clinical sites contracted with LIU Post- a list of sites is shown below. Students successfully completing the clinical internship are eligible to take the ASCP (American Society of Clinical Pathologists) national certification examinations for a CLS generalist. Certification is necessary for employment nation-wide and is required for licensure in New York State. Conferral of the M.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences degree is not contingent upon passing a certification or licensure exam.
