    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.
