Medical Laboratory Science

The purpose of the medical laboratory science major is to provide students, who wish to become medical laboratory scientists, a broad liberal arts background which they can take advantage of throughout their professional careers.

The Bachelor of Science degree in medical laboratory science consists of three years of academic coursework on the campus of Briar Cliff University followed by a clinical year at one of a variety of medical technology programs accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.

Students who are beginning their junior year will be applying for admission to these programs. The clinical year of such programs is credited as one year of academic work at Briar Cliff University (31 credit hours). The successful completion of the clinical portion of the program results in the awarding of the baccalaureate degree.
