Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

Medical Laboratory Science

The Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) program offers a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science through two routes: 1) a Traditional on-campus Program; and 2) an online Progression Program designed for certified medical/clinical laboratory technicians (CLT/MLT).

Both programs are five semesters in length and are designed to provide students with broad-based knowledge in clinical and basic sciences. The program offers a unique blend of coursework combined with clinical instruction in hospital laboratories.

The MLS program is accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences, for more information contact them at:
