The online degree completion program in medical laboratory science is designed for students who hold an Associate degree in Medical Laboratory Science and wish to complete their Bachelor’s degree. Online degree completion programs offer students the flexibility to complete their degree when they do not live close to the University campus or have time commitments preventing them from attending a traditional program.
The Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) program prepares graduates to analyze clinical specimens through the use of specialized skills and sophisticated instrumentation.
