Driving Science, By Leading Change

Careers in laboratory science are constantly changing with new technologies and techniques. However, one thing remains unchanged - successful careers in clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic laboratories require fluency with instrumentation and the ability to interpret and analyse the data that it generates.

Students pursuing more traditional STEM Master of Science degrees are often narrowly trained in a single discipline, while students with a Professional Science Master degree sometimes lack broad scientific training. Bay Path’s MS in Applied Laboratory Science & Operations program bridges that divide.
