We asked our Microscopy graduates how the program changed their lives, and here’s what they said!

(Former student who just got into graduate school)
“I literally, yes literally, could NOT have done any of this without you! There is so much I want to tell you and I hope I’m able to express my gratitude for all that you have done for me. I was really struggling to get going and was really losing hope before I started at Merritt. Your program has given me so much, an entirely new set of skills, wonderful new connections, new friends, inspiration and now a clear path. It’s so much more than I ever expected answering that craigslist ad!”


“Merritt College really changes lives. I was able to transition from property management to a career in research light microscopy at UC Berkeley after taking a year and a half of courses in microscopy and histotechnology. Dr. Giorgi is an amazing mentor and leader. Dr. Rowning is a very thorough professor who wants us to be the best, most educated in the field. I am forever grateful for the journey I was led on through this program. Next up is a Master’s in Public Health with an emphasis in biostatistics and epidemiology.”
