Why This Program?
Preparing you for healthcare
The medical laboratory science program enables students to graduate with an accredited bachelor's degree. You'll also have a well-rounded liberal arts degree, meaning you'll have the credentials and the real-world experience to stand out from the rest of the field. It's one of the most crucial, in-demand jobs in healthcare today!
- Get the college experience: Does working in a laboratory setting sound interesting to you? Spend your first three years taking on-campus courses focused on chemistry and biology courses, with all labs conducted by your professors. During your junior year, you'll apply to your choice of medical laboratory science programs.
- Learn by doing: After you're accepted into a program, you'll spend a fourth "clinical year" at the approved program, taking clinical coursework centered around microscopy/urinalysis, hematology/coagulation, microbiology, serology/immunology, chemistry and immunohematology; along with orientation, introduction to research, management and supervision courses.
Once you've graduated, you'll be qualified and prepared to sit for the national certifying exam, administered by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
