Gain hands-on experience working with laboratory equipment such as microscopes and spectrophotometers. As you uncover facts through testing and experimentation, you develop concrete critical thinking skills.
Your instructors know you by name—not number. At CLC, the instructors are teachers first, researchers second. They dedicate their careers to helping you learn and understand the biological sciences.
You learn the same materials studied at 4-year schools, while you receive the personal attention and feedback possible only in small class sizes.
